Good Saleable Fiction is the Bookseller’s

Unwin’s 1 - net novels are the pick of

names, but good stories. Ethel M. Dell’s 
novels, “The Way of an Eagle’’ and 
“The Knave of Diamonds,” Robert W. 
Service’s powerful novel of the Yukon, 
The Trail of ’98,” and A. G. Hales’ 
famous novel “ M Glusky the Reformer ”

Whitaker’s Almanack will be published to-day 
(Friday). We much regret that publication has 
been so long postponed, but unexpected obstacles 
•caused by the war, together with the general 
difficulties of production and transport, which 
most of our readers have themselves experienced, 
have made it quite impossible to issue it earlier. 

Messrs. T. Nelson & Sons have formed their 
well-known publishing business into a private 
limited company with a capital of ^390,000 in 
^,’350,000 Preference and ,£40,000 Ordinary 
Shares of £1 each. The first directors are Thos. 
A. Nelson, I. T. Nelson, G. M. Brown, J. 

Mr. E. J. Larbv has acquired an interest in 
the old-established firm of Messrs. C. Smith & 
Sons, Ltd., map and globe manufacturers, late 
of Charing Cross, and will in future act as their 
general manager. The company are at present 
busily engaged on munition work, but hope, in 
a very short period, to be in a position to supply 
all their maps and globes as in the past. 

Mr. Alfred F. Blades has been unanimously 
elected a trustee of the Printers’ Pension Cor- 
poration in succession to the late Mr. W. Hugh 

Olney. — The old-established bookselling, 
stationery, fancy and printing business carried 
on for the past twenty-six years by Mr. W. I. 
Knight, who is retiring, has been acquired by 
Mr. A. H. Stanley. The sale was effected and 
the valuation made on behalf of both parties by 
Messrs. F. T. Evans & Co., of 8, Paternoster 

Shrewsbury. The partnership hitherto exist- 
ing between Mr. H. W. Adnitt and Mr. W. W. 
Naunton, trading under the style of Adnitt & 
Naunton, as booksellers, stationers, and printers, 
at the Square, has been dissolved bv mutual 
consent as from the 28th of October last. The 
business will henceforth be carried on by Mr. 
W. W. Naunton, under the old style of Adnitt 
& Naunton, and he will receive all debts due to, 
and pay all debts owing by, the late firm. 

“ The Athemeum ” in future will be issued as 
a shilling monthly, and not weekly as heretofore. 
The first number of the new series will be pub- 
lished to-morrow, January 15th. The pro- 
posed change has been the subject of long 
and careful consideration ; the publishers have 
drawn up a statement of their reasons for making 
it, and they will be glad to send this to any one 
who asks for it. They do not, they say, publish 
this statement because — though the opinions 
expressed in it are being adopted by an increasing 
number— they are not convinced that they will be 
of interest to the majority of readers of the 
A thenccum. 

The Religious Tract Society notify that the 
prices of their magazines, “ The Boy’s Own 
Paper,” ‘‘The Girl’s Own and Woman’s 
Magazine,” and “ The Sunday at Home,” will be 
sixpence net commencing with the new issues. The 
new price, which has been necessitated by the 
greatly increased cost of production, has been 
fixed at the special request of a great many 
members of the trade.

John Crerar Library, Chicago. Offers of books, 
pamphlets, and periodicals on the subject should 
be addressed to the President of the Association, 
Dr. Hugo Erichsen, 240, Chandler Avenue, 
Detroit, Mich., U.S.A. 

The Council of the Dickens Fellowship appeal 
for any of Dickens’ novels on behalf of our 
•wounded soldiers, by whom they are sure to be 
very much appreciated. All books sent to the 
Secretary of the Fellowship at 30, Charing Cross, 
or to the local secretaries of the many branches 
all over the country, will be thankfully received 
and immediately distributed. 

Dr. Maria Montessori’s International Training 
Course, announced for January 15, has been post- 
poned to the 15th of February, owing to 
the sudden death of the Dottoressa’s father, 
Chevalier Alexandre Montessori. All applica- 
tions for joining the Course should be made to 
the Honorary Secretary, Mr. C. A. Bang, 20, 
Bedford Street, Strand, London, W.C. 

The Australian Import of Books, including 
Music, Periodicals, and Newspapers, for the year 
June, 1914, to June, 1915, eleven months of 
which we were at war, show, as might have been 
•expected, some falling off as compared with the 
year 1913, the figures being £610,320 and 
£680,718 respectively. For New Zealand the 

corresponding figures are £252,146 and 

£248,668, which shows that New Zealand has 
not suffered general financial loss by the war, and 
has been able to maintain business as usual. The 
Australian deficiency is not nearly as much as 
some persons anticipated, and the whole situation 
may be taken as very satisfactory. As nearly 
nine-tenths of the Australian book trade is done 
with the United Kingdom, it is the United 
Kingdom which bears most of the loss. Imports 
from America are somewhat larger, and the fall- 
ing off in imports from Germany is comparatively 
small, .£7,038 as compared with £9,968. It is 
explained, however, that this is due to the fact 
that the importation represents goods in transit 
before the war, or goods held in Britain before the 
war and re-exported. Altogether the figures, 
which we take from our contemporary, the 
11 Australian Bookfellow, ” are comparatively 
satisfactory, and justify the optimistic prophets 
rather than those — and there were some — who 
expected an almost wholesale collapse. 

Mr. B. H. Blackwell, of Oxford, has published 
an English-Serbian Phrase-book, with easy

Languages at Oxford. The book is specially 
Intended for the use of our soldiers serving in the 

The Queen has given permission for the motor 
ambulance subscribed for by the readers and

“ The Publishers’ Weekly ” of New York 
tentatively suggests an extension of the book- 
stall or book-stand in the thousands of small 
towns throughout the United States which are 
too small to support any sort of regular book- 
store. The suggestion is limited to book-stands, 
one-man or one-woman shops, whose proprietor 
knows equally well stock and customers, and is 
adept at fitting each to the other. “ The e 
would not be,” it is pointed out, ‘‘there need 
not be, any competition with established book 
stores. The untouched field in the small towns of 
the country is wide, and would prove exceedingly 
fruitful. The little tea-room with a book alcove, 
the arts and crafts shop with a book annex, the 
one-room bookshop, and the store-corner book- 
shop, all these are possibilities in the towns at 
present too small to support any sort of a regular 
bookstore. . . . Eventually, many of these little 
bookstalls would develop into full-fledged book- 
stores, so that the importance of a movement ot 
the sort properly launched and successfully 
administered can hardly be over-estimated. . . . 
Unless the plan of campaign were careful!) 
organised and worked out in the fullest detail the 
percentage of failures would almost surely run 
impossibly high. But careful analysis of the 
difficulties in advance, and carefully prepared and 
clearly formulated solutions of them would 
undoubtedly save many an embryo bookstall from 
shipwreck. There must, in other words, be a 
standardised plan. ... In this way, and in no 
other, can entrance into bookselling be made 
possible, even in small towns, with any hope of 
ultimate or continued success.” 

The British Industries Fair, which is promoted 
by the Board of Trade on similar lines to the Fair 
organised at the Royal Agricultural Hall in May 
last year, will be held in the buildings of the 
| Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington. 
It will be opened on Monday, February 21st, and 
remain open till March 3rd, the Friday week after. 
Only British manufacturers in china and earthen- 
•ware, glass, fancy goods, toys and games, 
stationery and printing will be allowed to exhibit. 
Admission, as before, will be by invitation of the 
Board of Trade alone, and will be restricted to 
bona-fide buyers for the trades concerned. 
Further particulars can be had at the Board of 
Trade, 32, Cheapside, E.C. 

Messrs. Cassell & Co. have just published 
‘•The Secret Memories of Bertha Krupp,” by 
Henry W. Fischer, which purport to disclose the 
mysterious plottings and intrigues whereby the 
German Emperor gained the personal control of 
the gigantic undertaking at Essen. The story, as 
here presented, is absorbingly and thrillingly in- 
teresting, and the account of what Bertha Krupp 
saw and heard, and her personal experiences at the 
Kaiser’s court, are sure to be read with widespread 
wonder and interest.

The English Edition of “ The Atlantic 
Monthly,” the oldest journal of its kind in the 
United States, is now published by Messrs. 
J. M. Dent & Sons, Ltd. Many of the American 
writers best known and most widely read in 
English-speaking countries — Emerson, Oliver 
Wendell Holmes, James Russell Lowell — were 
once among its contributors. The. present 
American Ambassador was its Editor from 1896 
to 1899. The January number contains many 
names well known to British readers. Mr. John 
Masefield, Mr. Laurence Binyon, Mr. Bliss 
Carman contribute poems; Prof. W. J. Ashley 
writes on Germany and Cotton,” Mr. J. W. 
Headlam on “ The Balkans and Diplomacy,” 
and Mr. Roland G. Usher discusses the question 
“ Can Sea Power Decide the War? ” 

Sir Sidney Lee’s “ Life of William, Shake- 
speare,” when it was first published, now several 
years ago, was at once recognised as a standard 
and authoritative work. It did not, perhaps, set 
before the reader a clear and definite portrait of 
the man himself — the known facts are not suffi- 
cient for any one to do that — but it certainly 
enabled the reader to realise as far as possible the 
whole surroundings of the time in which our 
great dramatist lived and worked, how he plaved 
his parts, how he wrote his famous dramas. And 
as to all the facts the “ Life ” was even then the 
one indispensable book. The present new 
edition, which has been most carefully revised 
and rewritten and brought up to date, incorpo- 
rates the not inconsiderable additions to our 
Shakespearean knowledge which have been 
gathered during the years since the first edition 
appeared. It is now a complete and trustworthy 
treasure house of all the facts concerning Shake- 
speare carefully arranged and sorted, so that the 
reader is at any rate provided with all the 
material available for the understanding and 
illustration of the life, the work, and the sur- 
roundings of the great dramatist. Such a book 
as this can probably never be permanently defini- 
tive, but this last edition is certainly as definitive 
as any such book can ever be. It is, indeed, a 
marvellous expansion of the original Life, which 
was first written for the Dictionary of National 
Biography, and it is only fitting that Messrs. 
Smith, Elder & Co., the publishers of the one 
great undertaking, should also be the publishers 
of the other. 

We have received from the office of “ Colour,” 
25, Victoria Street, S.W., an attractive book, 
entitled ‘‘Belgian Art in Exile,” which contains 
many excellent reproductions, mainly in colour, of 
works by Belgian artists, who are either refugees 
in England or prisoners in Germany. Many of 
the pictures here represented have been exhibited 
in English exhibitions — the Royal Academy, at 
Liverpool, Brighton, Birmingham, Cheltenham, 
and elsewhere — where they have been greatly 
appreciated. The present collection certainly 
forms a representative gallery of modern Belgian 
art, and is sure to find a hearty welcome from the 
English public. The book is issued under the 
patronage of the Duchess of Vendome and the 
Princess Napoleon, and the profits will be given to 
the Belgian Red Cross and other Belgian 
charitable institutions. 

Messrs. Hutchinson & Co. are issuing, in about 
twenty fortnightly parts, an exceptionally attrac- 
tive and interesting new work, “ Deeds that Thrill 
the Empire,” givin'g true stories of the most 
glorious acts of heroism of the Empire’s soldiers 
and sailors during the Great War. The narra- 

tives have been written by well-known authors,, 
and the numerous illustrations, many of them in 
colours, are by leading artists. Everyone, we are 
sure, will be eager to read the famous stories of 
the wonderful heroism of the Australian and New 
Zealand troops, and the brave work of the 

Canadian and Indian soldiers is hardly less 
exciting. There is certain to be a large demand 
for the work, and the prevailing difficulties and 
hindrances caused by the war in the printing and 
paper trade may prove troublesome, so that 
early applications are desirable. With the 

first 100,000 copies of the first part a beautiful 
coloured oicture will be presented. It represents 
the famous landing of the troops from H.M.S. 
River Clyde, at Sedd-el Bahr, Gallipoli, 
April 25th last year, painted in his best manner 
by Mr. Charles Dixon, R.I. Ample free adver- 
tising material has been provided by the pub- 
lishers, and will be forwarded to any bookseller.

“ The Publishers’ Weekly ” reprints from the 
Saturday Evening Post a helpful article advo- 
cating- a higher standard in books for boys’ 
reading. A normal bov of fourteen, it remarks, 
likes a book with action, adventure, suspense, 
the wonder of strange conditions, the thrill of 
peril, and the exultation of escaping it. It 
suggests as antidotes to the dime novel such 
books as Prescott’s “Conquest of Mexico,’’ 
Washington Irving’s “ Tales of the Early 
Spanish Explorers in America,” Francis Park- 
man’s “ Stories of the Early Explorations and 
Settlements of North America.” In the realm 
of fiction there are good books suitable for young 
readers more thrilling than the thrillingest bad 

“ Etrennes, 1916,” the usual Christmas Illus- 
trated Catalogue of the French publishing trade, 
makes this year a very satisfactory appearance. 
It is naturally smaller than in normal times, but 
the fact that, in spite of the war, it runs to 160 
pages is sufficient evidence that the French book 
trade still retains a good deal of healthy life and 
vigour, and is not unduly depressed by the critical 
conditions which still prevail. The great bulk 
of the books advertised naturally deals with the 
present war or with previous wars in which 
France took a foremost share, but there are also 
books on other subjects, while picture books and 
gift books for children are well represented. We 
can only congratulate our French friends in the 
trade on this evidence of the brave stand they 
are making against very adverse circumstances. 

Illustration from “An Untamed Territory,” by Elsie Masson, recently published by Messrs. Macmillan & Co. 

book. Many wrong books for boys are perfectly 
moral in the narrowest sense of that abused word. 
They describe how a fourteen-year-old boy with 
a discarded set of harness and an old hoop skirt 
made a flying machine and sailed round the earth ; 
or with a leaky wash-boiler and two dollars in 
cash built a submarine that destroyed the enemy’s 
fleet ; how a lad in knee breeches circumvented a 
gang of desperate criminals and so became 
president of a railroad at sixteen. “ These tales 
of preposterous juvenile achievement are depraved 
because they are monstrous lies. . . . They are 
a sort of psychological whisky-drinking that 
makes the victim unresponsive to wholesome 
natural tonics and begets a flabby craving for 
this artificial kick.” The parent should see what 
his boy or his girl is reading. If it is a bad 
book it is his fault : it is his business to get him 
or her a good one in place of it. 

Messrs. Methuen & Co. have just published Mr. 
Arnold Bennett’s new and long-anticipated book, 
“ These Twain ” : it is a sequel to “ Clay hanger ” 
and “ Hilda Lesswavs,” but is complete in itself, 
and it closes the “ Clayhanger Series.” 

We feel sure that this issue, which may well 
be described as very successful, is a permanent 
augury of a speedy return when the war is con- 
cluded to the normally prosperous conditions 
which French publishers so deservedly enjoy. 
Many things, no doubt, will be changed by the 
war, but we are fairly certain that the reading 
of books and the buying of books will be quite as 
large as, or even larger than, before the war burst 
upon us. 

The sporting tales of Nat Gould are always 
popular, and particularly so with our soldiers and 
sailors, who fully appreciate the exceptional 
human interest, the love, the sport, the adventures, 
the virtues, the villainies, which make up the 
staple of the various stories. Miss Beatrice 
Harraden, the well-known novelist, who has 
busied herself very much with the work of send- 
ing out books to the troops at the front, testifies 
that in her experience the books of Nat Gould are 
far and away the most popular. Messrs. John 
Long & Co., who publish all his novels, will be 
glad to send a list of the books, the price of which 
ranges from sixpence to six shillings. 



January 14, 1916 

Messrs. Ward, Lock & Co. have just published 
a new novel by that fertile and always attractive 
writer, Marie Connor Leighton. The title of this 
tale is “ Human Nature,” and in common with 
all her popidar tales it is full to overflowing with 
romance, mystery, and sensation, so that the 
reader’s interest is at once aroused and firmly held 
to the very end. The death of the master of the 
house at the very hour that a birthday dance in 
honour of his heir is in full swing ; a mysterious 
murder at the same moment ; a hidden will ; the 
changing of two babies ; a secret midnight mar- 
riage, followed by a bigamous marriage cere- 
mony, all these are only a few items in the 
mysterious and exciting plot. Two love stories, 
of Noel Castle and Pauline Castle, and of Molly 
Antwiss or Castle and Dan Ruddock, the Labour 
M.P., are very ingeniously brought in, and still 
further increase the interest. The tale is one of 
the best of its kind, and is sure to prove widely 

Messrs. Barnicott & Pearce, of the Wessex 
Press, Taunton, have just published a very useful 
and practical little book entitled “ The A B C of 
Banking,” by a writer who uses the appropriate 
pseudonym of “ L.S.D.” It is intended to be of 
some assistance to the young bank official from 
the period when he joins the staff to his appoint- 
ment as manager. It has been written from actual 
experiences, and rightly emphasises the great im- 
portance of a banker’s discretion. It will be of 
the greatest use to all banking officials, and also 
to those of the public who wish to have some little 
insight into banking methods and banking 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., will publish in a few 
days an English translation of that very notable 
book, ‘‘Hindenburg’s March into London,” w'hich 
is selling in Germany in millions, and is arousing 
immense enthusiasm. The English translation 
should be read by everyone, for it lays bare, as 
no other German book has done, the real mind 
of the German people. There is no mistaking the 
grim relish of the author in describing the 
thoroughness with which Britain is made to feel 
the worst horrors of war. “ Repeat the lesson of 
Louvain ” is the order of the German Com- 
mander, and in this connection it should always 
be remembered that the book is far and away the 
most popular of the season in Germany. No better 
incentive for enlisting has appeared, and if, as it 
most assuredly will do, it steels the nation to even 
greater determination and sacrifice, no one will 
have done Germany a greater disservice than the 
author of ‘‘Hindenburg’s March into London.” 
We may note that the popular edition of this book 
will be published at is. 3d. instead of is., as the 
enormous increase in the cost of production 
caused by the war makes the higher price quite 

Messrs. Cassell & Co. have just published Sir 
Rider Haggard’s new novel, “ The Ivory Child,” 
of which it is probably sufficient recommendation 
to sav that it deals with a new episode in the life of 
Allan Quatermain, who has already figured with 
successful prominence in so many of Sir Rider 
Haggard’s previous novels. His originality of 
plot, his fertile imagination, and his graphic 
realism have never been more happily illustrated, 

and from every point of view his new book will 
more than satisfy the most exigent and exacting 
of his numerous admirers. How the newly-mar- 
ried wife of Lord Ragnall, an Eastern Counties 
magnate, is unexpectedly and, indeed, mys- 
teriously kidnapped by two strange Eastern, or 
rather African, magicians; how she is conveyed 
into inmost Africa, and there kept prisoner by a 
native tribe in order to ensure the safety of a 
native god, or rather image, the child carved in 
ivory, are set forth with all the graphic and pic- 
turesque vigour with which Sir Rider Haggard is 
so amply endowed. Indeed, the later scenes of 
the terrible fight in which Allan Quatermain, 
whose skill as a shot is usually so certain, by some 
strange chance twice misses the great elephant, 
and how the huge beast is slain by an old Hot- 
tentot, who is quite content to give his life for his 
English baas, make some of the most exciting and 
thrilling episodes we remember. Of course, Allan 
Quatermain and his companions have numerous 
hairbreadth escapes from perils and dangers, while 
the good fortune which keeps them safe is quite 
proverbial. Still, such conditions are almost in- 
evitable in these attractive romances, and hardly 
qualify the pleasure of the reader, who is 
altogether too much engrossed and fascinated to 
think of any such hypercriticism. We are exceed- 
ingly glad to know that Sir Rider’s power as a 
romantic writer is as great as ever, and we shall 
still hope to receive several more equally good 
examples of his characteristic and effective 

Messrs. Sothebys some two years ago, as we 
then announced in The Bookseller, notified 
their prospective removal, owing to the termina- 
tion of the lease, from their premises in Welling- 
ton Street, Strand, to the Dore Galleries, in 
Bond Street, which they had acquired for their 
business. It is now stated that the removal will 
take place probably next autumn, when the 
necessary alterations will have been completed. 
The business was originally founded by one 
Samuel Baker, a bookseller in York Street, 
Covent Garden, who started as an auctioneer 
with a miscellaneous sale on January 7th, 1744. 
Later the firm became Baker, Leigh and Sotheby— 
Sotheby being a nephew of Baker — and was 
moved to 145, Strand, in 1804. Mr. George 
Leigh, the auctioneer of the firm, was a leading 
practitioner in the profession ; he had a perfect 
command of the hammer, and knew well how to 
handle his audience when famous bibliomaniacs 
such as the Duke of Roxburgh and Dr. Gossett 
bid with a spirit and enterprise which are hardly 
known to-day. He was also a man of scholar= 
ship, and it was no doubt to him that the 
fame of the well-known firm is very largely due. In 
1818, a year after the opening of Waterloo 
Bridge, Mr. Sotheby removed to the present 
premises, then No. 3, now No. 13, Wellington 
Street, and in 1897 the premises were largely 
remodelled, and two shops facing Wellington 
Street were taken in and became part of Sothebys’ 
premises. A point of special importance which 
lias certainly added to the high reputation of the 
firm among bibliophiles is the minute accuracy 
which always marks their catalogues, and the 
series which is now in the British Museum is of 
quite exceptional value and interest.

The “ Athenaeum ” proposes to issue a Subject 
Index to Periodicals, of which two parts have 
been sent to us. They form two out of twelve 
class lists, which are issued in advance of the 
annual volume. The new index is undertaken at 
the request of the Council of the Library Asso- 
ciation, and the volume for 1915 will comprise 
not less than 10,000 entries selected from over 
350 English, American, and Continental publica- 
tions issued between January and December, 
1915. The Index is based upon the alphabetical 
subject headings of the Library of Congress now 
under revision, modified to suit English practice 
and considerably extended. The Annual Volume 
for 1915 is to be preceded by the publication of 
a series of Class Lists dealing with twelve 
separate subjects, which are to be issued as rapidly 
as possible between November 1st, 1915, and 
February, 1916. Arrangements have also been 
made with Messrs. W. H. Smith & Son whereby 
on the payment of a charge of qd. subscribers 
will be entitled to the loan of articles indexed. 
All correspondence on this point should be 
addressed to the Library Department, Messrs. 
W. H. Smith &: Son, 186, Strand, W.C. 

Messrs. Macmillan & Co. announce the follow- 
ing forthcoming educational books: — “The

ping system, which begins with the legend based 
upon history, and leads the pupil nearer and 
nearer to his own time. Illustrated in colour and

The “ Publishers’ Weekly ” states that the 
English Government is now prepared to issue 
permits for shipment to the L T nited States of 
books in German or other language from the 
enemies of Great Britain, of a philosophical, 
scientific, technical or educational character, if 
specifically destined for Universities, colleges, or 
public bodies. In all such permits the good 
faith of the application and the particular institu- 
tion must be vouched for by some official 
authority. The Librarian of Congress has indi- 
cated his willingness to act in this capacity, and 
universities, colleges, or other public institutions 
interested should forward their applications to 

Mr. Neil Lyons has already made for himself 
a widespread reputation as a writer of humorous 
sketches and character studies, and his new book, 

‘ ’ Moby Lane and Thereabouts,” which Mr. John 
Lane has just published, is as attractive and de- 
lightful as any of its predecessors. The genial 
humour, the quaint satire, the real sympathy, the 
easy naturalness and the genuine insight which 
each sketch illustrates is quite admirable, while the 
individuality of the writing and the originality of 
the style and conception deserves special notice. 
Whether we read of the curious pedlar and his 
ragged family of “ Mobies,” of the typical butcher 
boy who embezzles his master’s money and rather 
hastily cuts his throat, or whether we pay special 
attention to the satiric sketch of the new Squire 
Kosky, “ the head of the Corn Exchange 
in London,” or the rustic Gideon Hemus, with his 
“ bed o’ pattikews,” the reader is equally im- 
pressed and delighted. The sketches throughout 
are human pen pictures, and evidence at once a 
dramatic power and a real insight into human 
nature which are quite exceptional. 

Messrs. Macmillan & Co. have just published 
“ Essays for Boys and Girls: A First Guide 
toward the Study of the War,” by Stephen Paget. 
He points out that his book is intended for boys 
and girls only. The chief points in the contest — 
its outbreak, its principal events, and the lessons 
to be learnt from them — are most admirably 
handled, and a better book for the instruction of 
the boys and girls of England on these matters 
could hardly be written. Its value is further 
increased by the reproduction of some typical 
“ Punch ” cartoons by Messrs. Bernard Partridge, 
F. H. Townsend, and L. Raven Hill, and the book 
itself is appropriately dedicated to Sir Owen 
Seaman, the well-known editor of “ Punch.” The 
same publishers have issued a very useful “ Out- 
line of Industrial History,” with special reference 
to Problems of the present day, by Edward 
Cressy. It sets forth in easy and intelligible lan- 
guage an excellent account of our economic and 
industrial changes and developments during the 
last two hundred years. It brings into admirable 
relief the chief historical landmarks in the evolu- 
tion of modern problems of industry and politics, 
and should prove an excellent introduction to 
further and more detailed study of this increas- 
ingly important side of our national welfare. The 
book has been excellently arranged, and can be 
verv heartily commended. 

The four popular magazines. — “The Story- 
Teller,” “Cassell’s Magazine of Fiction,” “ The 
Quiver,” and the “New Magazine” — enjoy an 
almost world-wide circulation, as is shown by the 
fact that the publishers have just received for 
perusal from a leading advertiser a letter from the 
Gold Coast quoting “The Story-Teller”; from 
Montreal referring to “ Cassell’s Magazine of 
Fiction”: from Epping, New South Wales, 

quoting “The Quiver,” and from Sydney alluding 
to “ The New Magazine ” advertisements. 

Messrs. Gav & Hancock remind us that they 
have published an edition of Cardinal Newman’s 
famous poem, “The Dream of Gerontius,” with 
illustrations by Mr. Francis E. Hiley, which has 
had, thev inform us, considerable success. Mr. 
Hilev’s drawings admirably interpret the purpose 
and intention of the poem. 



January 14, 1916 

Messrs. Stanley Paul Co. have just published 
“ The Life and Times of Queen Adelaide,” by 
Mary F. Saunders, which gives the reader a 
very interesting and admirable account of a 
personality who has hardly received the full 
appreciation which is really her due. She came 
to England under difficult conditions, and the 
short time she was the Queen Consort she was 
necessarily the victim of circumstances for which 
she was not responsible and over which she had 
but very limited control, while her real excel- 
lences were at first unable to make themselves 
fully appreciated. It was, of course, at the time, 
quite natural that she should be very strongly 
opposed to the Reform Bill movement, and she 
can perhaps hardly be blamed in resisting as far 
as in her lay any concessions to what she would 
naturally regard as democratic influences, such 
as those which brought about the terrors of the 
French Revolution, with the execution of the 
King and Queen of France. It was equally 

natural that the English people should on their 
part resent what they considered her intervention 
in politics. A further inevitable addition to her 
difficulties was the domestic morals of her 
husband, and, indeed, of all the royal princes. 
It is, in fact, very greatly to her credit that on 
the whole she managed to steer a fairly clear 
course, to maintain her own high standards of 
decency and propriety, and at the same time to 
avoid open rupture with her husband’s family. 
While her position was necessarily anomalous it 
is altogether in her favour that “ she was deter- 
mined that the women at least of her Court 
should be above reproach.” After the king’s death 
she gladly, no doubt, retired into private life, and 
fully earned the title by which she was later 
known of good Queen Adelaide. It is 
pleasant to know that in the end she conquered 
the affections of the English people, and that her 
death was genuinelv mourned by all classes. 
Miss Saunders has done her task as biographer 
with excellent tact and judgment : she has given 
us many details which have hitherto been 
insufficiently known, and the general outlines of 
her portrait will be received with every approval. 
Her treatment of the political questions which are 
necessarily involved is throughout marked by 
sound sense and judgment, and all interested in 
the subject and in the period will find her book 
both important and attractive. The many illus- 
trations and portraits with which it is furnished 
add notably to its value and interest. 

Messrs. James Willing, Ltd., have issued the 
forty-third annual issue of the well-known 
“Willing’s Press Guide.” It contains the usual 
information which has made it so long a very 
helpful book of reference to all who are concerned 
with newspapers and advertising. 

Messrs. T. Nelson & Sons have published “ A 
Tramp’s Sketches,” by Stephen Graham, in their 
Shilling Library; “Four Chimneys,” a char- 
acteristic novel by Miss J. Macnaughton, in the 
best manner of that popular writer; “Marie 
Antoinette Dauphine,” par Pierre de Nolhac ; 
“ Notre Dame d’ Amour, ” par Jean Aicard, de 
I’Academie Francaise, in the Collection Nelson 
of popular French literature. 

Mr. and Mrs. Egerton Castle have given us in 
their delightful little book, “ A Little House in 
War Time,” which Messrs. Constable &: Co. have 
just published, a charming and attractive account 
of their own experiences in their country house 
during the period of the war. They describe, in 
their own characteristic fashion the Belgian 
refugees whom they housed, with their quaint 
and curious ways, and how they entertained from 
time to time batches of wounded soldiers from 
a neighbouring Red Cross hospital. They give 
us a description of their beautiful gardens and 
grounds, which were placed at the full disposal 
of their guests, and narrate many incidents of 
their soldier friends, now coming back on leave 
for a few days, now starting for the front, all 
eager to do their “ little bit ” for the safety and 
honour of the old country. Much of what their 
authors have to tell is, no doubt, the ordinary 
experiences of many country homes, but,, as the 
English reading public know so well, Mr. and 
Mrs. Castle have a way of their own in writing 
their books ; they can make what they say quite 
unusually interesting and impressive. Their 
book is sure to attract general attention, and will 
no doubt attain as large a popularity as any of 
their previous successes. 

“ The Path of Glory,” by Anatole France, 
which Mr. John Lane has just added to his cob 
lected edition of the works of that well-known 
French writer, will need no commendation to the 
many English admirers of that famous French- 
man. Mr. Lane has given the reader the original 
French, together with an English version by Mr. 
Alfred Allinson, and a photogravure portrait of 
M. France forms an appropriate frontispiece. 
The book consists of miscellaneous papers and 
letters, mostly bearing on the war ; and a dialogue 
in the manner of Herodotus between Xerxes, the 
great King of Persia, and Demaratus, a Spartan 
exile among the Persians, accurately brings to- 
gether some of the characteristics in which the 
Spartans and Greeks illustrate the national stand- 
point of the Allies, while Xerxes is naturally 
made to represent the contrast of the German 
ruling ideals. It is admirably written, and will 
be found particularly worth attention. 

Messrs. Longmans & Co. have published 
an interesting account of the successful campaign 
against the Germans in South Africa in an un- 
pretentious little book entitled, “ With Botha in 
the Field,” by Moore Ritchie. The author, wffio 
was attached to the Headquarters Staff, gives 
a simple and easily intelligible description of the 
various operations, and he brings out very 
clearly the consummate skill with which General 
Botha surmounted the many arduous difficulties 
in his w'av, and the completeness with which at 
last he surrounded the enemy so that any effec- 
tive stand was made quite impracticable. Mr. 
Ritchie has given us some eighty illustrations 
from his own photographs, which add very 
greatly to the interest and value of the book and 
very usefully supplement and illustrate the 
narrative. It is a book of surpassing interest from 
beginning to end, and is sure to find widespread

Messrs. Bertram Wright & Co., 121, Bath 
Street, Glasgow, have sent us the first volume 
of a new work entitled, “ Europe in 
Arms: a Concise History of the War,” by 
Everard Wyrall. It is to be completed in three 
volumes, which will be sold in sets and not 
separately. The author has adapted the chrono- 
logical method of treatment, and his first volume 
deals with the first phase of the war, from the 
presentation of the Austrian Note to Serbia on 
July 23rd, 1914, to Yon Kluck’s retreat from Paris 
early in September. In the many descriptions of 
battles and engagements by land and sea he has, 
he tells us, relied entirely upon the official 
despatches, communiques, and reports of eye- 
witnesses, and he has certainly put together a 
very vigorous and effective narrative. His first 
chapter usefully contrasts the given reasons 
for the war with the real reasons ‘‘to extend 
Germanism throughout the entire world.” The 
chapter which describes how England met and 
faced the great crisis is excellently written, and 
the terrible story down to the failure of Von 
Kluck’s attempt on Paris is admirably handled. 
We need not follow Mr. Wyrall through the 
whole of his arresting and eventful account, and 
must content ourselves with a very hearty general 
commendation. The important matter of illus- 
trations has received special care and attention. 
Many are from photographs, and have been very 
carefully selected, while the plans of the Battle 
of Mons, of the Russian and Austrian armies at 
the end of August, 1914, and of the final stages of 
the famous rear-guard action from Mons to the 
Marne very materially help the reader to under- 
stand what took place. The two remaining 
volumes will be awaited with much eagerness and 

Moor Park, Rickmansworth, is one of the best 
known of the stately homes of England, and 
the volume of twenty photographs bv Mr. Alvin 
Langdon Coburn, which Mr. Elkin Mathews has 
just published, reproduces with great artistic 
skill and success some of its most notable 
features. Lady Ebury contributes a short intro- 
duction, in which she recounts the many changes 
of ownership it has seen, and as an appropriate 
conclusion Mr. Coburn has reprinted at the end 
the picturesque account of it to be found in the 
works of Sir William Temple, the patron of 
Swift. The little volume is in every way most 
delightful. All those who have ever seen the 
house or its surroundings will be glad to have 
so pleasant a souvenir, while those who have 
been less fortunate will be even more eager to 
possess the very delightful pictures which Mr. 
Coburn has here collected for their benefit. 

A lately published section of the Oxford 
Dictionary covers the words “ Standard ” — 

Stead, and includes a total of 995 entries. 
The greater portion of the section is occupied 
by a small number of important words, including 
“ staple,” “ star,” “ start,” “ starve,” “ stave,” 
and it is noted that there are no words at all 
from Celtic or Oriental, African and American 
languages. An article of special importance 
deals with the word “ state.” The section has 
been edited by Dr. Henry Bradley, and marks 
a further stage towards the completion of this 
great national undertaking.

Messrs. Andrew Melrose, Ltd., have published 
“ The Russian Campaign, April to August, and 
the Evacuation of Warsaw, 1915,” by Stanley 
Washburn. This is a continuation of the author’s 
first book, “ Field Notes from the Russian 
Front,” which, it will be remembered, attracted 
a good deal of attention, and the present volume 
is in many ways quite as interesting and 
important. Its outstanding features may shortly 
be said to be that Mr. Washburn here main- 
tains quite as strongly as before, his optimistic 
confidence in the victory of the Allies and of 
Russia, in spite of the fact that, as he quite 
candidly confesses, his earlier anticipations have 
not been realised. He maintains, indeed, that 
the summer campaign of the Russians has been 
the greatest factor in the war making for the 
ultimate victory of the Allies. For nearly four 
months Germany has been drained of her best. 
“ If Russia gets over the period of the next sixty 
days — this was written in August or September 
—she will be safe until spring, and by that time 
she will, without doubt, be able to take up an 
offensive in her turn. ... It may be for six 
months, and it may be for two years, but with 
the Allies patiently wearing down the enemy 
month after month and year after year, there can 
be but one end . . . the task of the Allies is to 
break the enemy, and that this will be done 
eventually, I think, cannot be doubted.” It is 
certainly very encouraging to find so competent 
a witness able to come to such a decision, par- 
ticularly as he has seen for himself and 
chronicled the apparent defeats and misfortunes 
which Russia has sustained since the spring. He 
describes the main events, the courageous retreat, 
the orderly evacuation of Warsaw and the 
other important Russian centres, with a vigour 
and realism which enable the reader almost to 
visualise for himself the whole terrible business. 
The many characteristic sketches of General 
Alexieff and other leading personalities, and the 
firm general grip which Mr. Washburn maintains 
over the whole campaign, make his book more 
interesting than any novel. Truth, they say, is 
stranger than fiction, and the present volume is 
a new illustration of a well-recognised fact. The 
many photographs by Mr. G. H. Mewes add 
very greatly to the value and usefulness of the 
book, and altogether we shall await with the 
keenest anticipation the future volumes which 
we hope Mr. Washburn will continue to give us. 

“ The Catholic Directory” for the present year 
has just been published by Messrs. Burns & 
Oates, and the Editor is able to say in his preface 
that the returns on which it is based have come 
in better than usual. It is interesting to note 
that, speaking generally, ‘‘for individual missions, 
for dioceses, for provinces, and for the country, 
the Catholic population is found to be (1) either 
five times the number of Catholic children in the 
Catholic schools, or (2) twenty-five times the 
infant baptisms, or (3) one hundred and twenty 
times the number of marriages.” The position 
of the. Directory as the authoritative record of 
Catholicism for the British Empire is fully main- 
tained, and various minor improvements make the 
work more useful and more indispensable than 
ever for all who are in any wav interested in the 
great communion with which it deals.

Messrs. Raphael Tuck & Sons’ Christmas books 
for children are this year, in spite of all 
hindrances, quite as delightful and attractive as 
the best of their predecessors. “ Father Tuck’s 
Annual,” which is edited by Capt. Edric 
Yredenberg, of the 10th London Regiment, 
provides for its young readers an ample budget 
of amusing and instructive reading, with 
pictures, both coloured and black-and-white, on 
every page. The artists, including such well- 
known names as Mabel Attwell, Hilda Cowham, 
M. and A. L. Bowley, have all dene their best, 
and we need hardly add that the general format 
and production of the volume are all that the 
most exacting little boy or girl could possible 
desire. Four new volumes now added to the 
popular “ Raphael House Library ” maintain 
all the characteristic features which have made 
the series so successful. “ Glorious Battles of 
English History ” have been judiciously selected 
and vividly described by Major C. H. Wylby, and 
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in a short foreword 
emphasises the moral that the British Army to- 
day is at least the equal, if not the superior, of 
its most famous predecessors, and that one of 
the greatest assets of the British Army is its 
tremendous tradition which so effectively inspires 
the minds and hearts of our soldiers. The 
numerous illustrations by Mr. Harry Payne are 
all quite excellent and deserve every praise. 
Three companion volumes are “ Children’s 
Stories from the Northern Legends,” bv M. 
Dorothy Belgrave and Hilda Hart, with illus- 
trations by Harry G. Theaker ; “Children’s 
Stories from Scott,” by Doris Ashley, illustrated 
by Harold C. Earnshaw ; “Children’s Stories 
from the Poets,” by M. Dorothy Belgrave and 
Hilda Hart, with pictures by Frank Adams. 
Each volume tells its own story, and needs no 
detailed review. It must suffice to sav that as 
gift books for children, as regards attractiveness, 
instruction and entertainment, they could hardlv 
be bettered, and in each both authors and artists 
have combined to produce delightful volumes 
which are sure to meet with universal approba- 

“ With my Regiment from the Aisne to La 

Bassee,” by Platoon Commander, which Mr. 
Heinemann has published, is a collection of life- 
like and realistic sketches of the life and work 
of an officer at the front from the first departure 
from England with a draft for the front till he is 
wounded and has to return home to the military 
hospital at Plymouth. Some of the chapters 
have already appeared in the English Review, 
the Evening Standard, and the Westminster 
Gazette, where they have attracted a good deal 
of attention. They are very simply and effec- 
tively written : they vividly reproduce the 

incidents, the surroundings, and the atmosphere 
of the various scenes so realistically described. 
The quiet, modest, matter-of-fact way in which 
the author describes his various experiences, and 
the graphic personal touches which he adds with 
such artless and effective skill, make the little 
volume particularly interesting. The reader is 
eager to follow the fortunes of the author, and, 
in spite of the often terrible story, is almost sorry 
when the end of the book is reached. 

Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston & Co. have 
published a very interesting shilling book of 
poems by one of the Canadian contingent, 
Sergeant Frank S. Brown, of the Princess 
Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, who was 
killed in action at St. Eloi last February. When 
he came to England he brought with him a bundle 
of poems, which he submitted to Mr. Holbrook 
Jackson, Editor of T.P.’s J Veekly, and it is, we 
presume, on Mr. Jackson’s recommendation that 
they are now given to the world. Some of them 
har e already appeared in Canadian journals, and 
their rough vigour, their strong patriotism and 
simple poetry can hardly fail to impress the 
reader. The first verse in the book runs as 
follows, and may be taken as a fair sample of 
the rest : — 

“ The bugle bawls a sharp ‘ Fall In,’ 

The section sergeants shout; 

A stampede in the markers, 

And the company turns out. 

And now you have us into line, 

Just cast vour eye within, 

And road the tale of these soldiers hale 
Who answered the cry ‘ Fall In.’ ” 

Messrs. Macmillan & Co. have published in an 
attractive sixpenny booklet, under the title' “ The 
Fringes of the Fleet,” the important articles 
which Mr. Rudyard Kipling recently contributed 
to the Daily Telegraph. 

Messrs. Cecil Palmer & Hayward have pub- 
lished a very attractive “ George Meredith 
Calendar, ’ providing a quotation from the works 
of that famous author for every day in the year. 
Miss Rachel Wheatcroft, who has made the 
selections, has done her work with much taste 
and judgment, and in a short Introduction she has 
given the main facts of his life. The brochure 
has been very tastefully and attractively produced, 
and will no doubt find a warm welcome among 
the numerous admirers of the great novelist. 
They have also added to their popular series of 
“ National Proverbs ” a very opportune Serbian 
volume. The selection has been judiciously 
made by Miss Amy Turner, who has been much 
assisted by the eminent Serbian scholar, 
M. W. M. Petrovitch, Attach^ to the Serbian 
Legation in London. In common with the 
previous volumes of the series, the commonplace 
proverbs have been omitted, and the best of 
those available from less known sources have been 
carefully given. The volume has been very 
daintily and attractively produced, with red line 
borders and the letterpress printed in tinted 
ink. It forms a very acceptable and in- 
expensive present, while it helps in its degree to 
enable us to understand something of the thoughts 
and feelings of our ally. 

“ The Christmas Bookshelf,” the well-known 

Christmas Number of the Publishers’ Weekly, 
running to over 200 pages, shows that the 
American publishing trade is in a thoroughly 
healthy and sound condition. The letterpress, 
both advertising and editorial, is attractive and 
helpful, and the many specimen illustrations on 
almost every page once more exemplify the high 
degree of technical and artistic perfection which 
America has reached in this very important 
department of book production. 

January 14, 1916 



Messrs. Stanley Paul & Co. have recently issued 
an excellent biography of George Keith, the last 
Earl Marischall of Scotland, under the title of 
“ The Scottish Friend of Frederick the Great,” 
by Mrs. Edith E. Cuthell. Just at the present 
moment, at any rate, the friendship of Frederick 
the Great is no useful passport to the sympathetic 
attention of English readers, but George Keith 
had a long and varied career, and in many ways 
is entitled to our respect and interest. He had 
served under Marlborough, and in 1715 he took 
sides with the Pretender, thereby forfeiting his 
estates and being compelled for over forty years 
to live in exile with the other Jacobite refugees. 
At last, through the help of Frederick, he was 
pardoned, and returned to England, taking the 
oath of allegiance to George III. When his 
brother James, the more famous Marshal Keith, 
took service with Frederick, he went to Prussia, 
and for many years enjoyed the close friendship 
of the Prussian King. He was also an intimate 
friend of Voltaire and Rousseau, and for a time 
Frederick’s ambassador to Paris, though this 
position proved unsatisfactory, and before very 
long he retired. The end of a long life he spent 
at Potsdam, and the lengthy letters which Mrs. 
Cuthell has quoted, perhaps rather too freely, 
show that personally he was high-minded, urbane, 
and distinguished, and that he well deserved the 
high estimation in which he was generally held. 
Mrs. Cuthell may be heartily congratulated 
on the success with which she has performed her 

Messrs. Wells Gardner, Darton & Co. have 
published a very attractive illustrated children’s 
gift-book entitled, “ A Gallery of Heroes and 
Heroines,” by Sir Harry Johnston, illustrated 
by Joseph Simpson. The heroes Sir Harry has 
chosen are Drake, Raleigh, Wolfe, Captain 
Cook, Nelson, Wellington, Havelock, Living- 
stone, Gordon, and Captain Falcon Scott, of the 
Antarctic, and the two heroines — there might 
perhaps have been one or two more — are 
Elizabeth Fry and Florence Nightingale. He 
tells their various stories briefly, vigorously, and 
effectively in plain and simple language, which 
his young readers can quite easily understand, 
and he leaves on their minds a very definite 
impression of the ereat men and women with 
whom he deals. Mr. Simpson’s portraits, are 
excellently drawn, and the general production of 
the volume, the grev luxurious paper, the larp-e 
print, and the attractive binding are all that could 
be desired. 

The Religious Tract Society h ave just pub- 
lished three popular old favourites in the shilling 
“ Good Sheoherd ” Series of large type children’s 
books. “ Little Harry at the Seaside,” by F. M. 
Holmes; ‘‘True Stories for the Little Ones,” 
bv L. I. and E. M. Tonge; “ Christie’s Old 
Organ,” by Mrs. O. F. Walton. 

Messrs. Constable & Co. have added “ The 
Heart of the Hills,” bv John Fox, Jun., author 
of that popular book “ The Little Shepherd of 
Kingdom Come,” to their two shilling “ West- 
minster Library of Fiction.” In its new and 
cheaper form it will no doubt make an effective 
appeal to a still wider circle of appreciative 

‘‘ Our Indians at Marseilles,” which Messrs. 
Smith, Elder & Co. have published, provides repro- 
ductions of some fifty drawings made by Mdlle. 
Massia Bibikoff, a young Russian artist, a pupil of 
Detaille, the celebrated battle painter. Mdlle. 
Bibikoff was fortunate enough to be allowed to 
sketch in the Indian camps when the Indian 
contingent reached Marseilles last year. She 
kept a diary of what she saw and the various 
events at which she was present, including her 
reception by the Maharajah of Jodhpur, who 
had brought over his men at his own expense. 
The diary has been translated by Mr. Leonard 
Huxley and provides some very interesting read- 
ing, and throws some new light on an episode of 
the war about which not very much has yet been 
made public. M. Maurice Barres, the French 
Academician, when he saw the MS., was so 
pleased that he offered his own article on the 
Indian troops as an Introduction. The fifty 
drawings are artistic and graphic, and help the 
reader to understand the various scenes and 
incidents they represent. 

Messrs. John Wright & Co., Bristol, have just 
published the ninth edition, making the 120th 
thousand, of ‘‘First Aid to the Injured and 
Sick, an Advanced Ambulance Handbook,” by 
Messrs. F. J. Warwick and A. C. Tunstall. Any 
special notice or commendation of so successful 
a book is hardly necessary, and we need only 
note that the present edition incorporates the new 
Stretcher Drill from the Royal Army Medical 
Corps training. 

The S.P.C.K. have just published a very 
instructive and delightful book for young readers, 
‘‘A Voyage in Space,” by Professor H. H. 
Turner, Savilian Professor of Astronomy at 
Oxford, a course of six lectures delivered at 
Christmas, 1913, at the Royal Institution as the 
eighty -eighth course of the Juvenile Lectures, which 
every winter form a very popular feature in the 
lecture work of that institution. Professor 
Turner, who is recognised as one of our leading 
authorities on astronomical subjects, here sets 
forth in simple and attractive language some of 
the leading facts of astronomy. He has very 
naturally mainly kept in view the needs of his 
more juvenile hearers, at the same time 
he tells us that sometimes he remembered 
that parents were present with their children, 
and their point of view had to be con- 
sidered. The book is lavishly illustrated, and 
is sure to attract mtich attention not only as a 
gift book, but also as a popular and intelligible 
introduction to a study which is always supremely 
interesting and fascinating. 

The Oxford English Dictionary is steadily 
making progress towards completion, and a new 
section of volume IX., containing the words 
“ Subterraneouslv to “ Sullen,” by Mr. C. T. 
Onions, has also just been published. It contains 
in all some 1,224 entries, with 8,398 illustrative 
quotations. Most of the words are either im- 
mediately or ultimately of Latin origin, and the 
two important exceptions, “ such ” and ‘ suck, 
which are Germanic, with their derivatives, fill 
no less than eleven pages, a fact which is in itself 
ample testimony to the completeness and compre- 
hensiveness of the work. 



January 14, 1916 

Under Cover. 

D EAR BLUESTOCKING, — “ It is a comfort to 
know that, whatever happens, 1916 cannot be 
worse than 1915 ! ” This fragment of philosophy 
came to me in a New Year letter the other day, and 
I am sure you will not think it unduly optimistic. As 
a matter of fact, we all hope, and all of us who are 
not inveterate “ Dismal Jimmies ” will do our best 
to believe, that the year upon which we have just 
entered will be a good deal better than its immediate 
predecessor. Not that 1915, to do its memory justice, 
was by any means as bad as, at the worst, it might 
have been ; but there is no getting away from the 
fact that it was, on the whole, a year of disappoint- 
ment. Instead of drawing perceptibly nearer to its 
predestined end, the greatest and most devastating 
war of all history w idely extended its boundaries ; 
and, of necessity, its crippling effect upon every 
department of our social and industrial life became 
more and more severely felt. So far as the book 
trade is concerned, I am afraid that the pleasures of 
retrospect, as applied to “ the year that’s awa’,” will 
be found by all concerned to be strictly limited. 

W hat a review of 1915 shows us is a desperate and 
continuous struggle to “carry on ” in the face of in- 
creasing difficulties and disadvantages, among which 
the distraction of the public mind from literary 
interests, the general “ tightness ” of money, the 
growing shortage of labour, and the largely increased 
cost of book production have been some of the most 
serious. Still, considering the nature of the obstacles 
to be surmounted, I think the book trade is fairly 
entitled to be congratulated on the extent to which 
it succeeded in “ keeping its end up ” during a year 
of persistent discouragement, hope deferred, and un- 
relieved anxiety. By general admission, the state of 
affairs has been by no means so wholly disastrous 
as the pessimists would have had us expect ; and the 
courage and enterprise with which a situation of 
unexampled difficulty was faced were not without, at 
least, some measure of reward. All the same, I fear 
the memory of 1915 will always remain something of 
a nightmare to the book world. 

So much for looking backward ; to what are we 
justified in looking forward in the year which has 
now begun? “ Hope told a flattering tale that joy 
would soon return ; ” and it would be easy enough to 
indulge in comforting anticipations of a "reversion to 
something like normal conditions as soon as the war 
is victoriously ended — a consummation which we all 
devoutly hope 1916 is fated to bring us. Optimism, 
however, is worse than useless unless it can show itself 
to be based on some more or less substantial founda- 
tion, nor is it at all helpful to ignore obvious facts 
for the sake of indulging in consolatory forecasts. 
We have, then, to make our account with the cer- 
tainty that, even if the war is happily brought to an 
end within the limits of this new year, the economic 
conditions which have resulted from it will still 
persist, and will render impossible any return to the 
state of things that prevailed in pre-“ Armageddon ” 
days. So we can only enter upon 191(3 with a stout 
resolve to make the best of circumstances as we find 
them, encouraged by the hope that anv mitigation of 
existing difficulties that peace could bring may be 
vouchsafed to us before next New Year’s Day. 

One thing that is clearly borne in upon us bv our 
present experiences is that there will be no room in 
the immediate future for the hidebound conventions 
and stereotyped methods which diid so much to 
restrict enterprise in more than one department of the 
book trade in the days before the present deluge. The 
new conditions under which we find ourselves cry 
aloud for new experiments and new departures. 
Publishers, booksellers, authors — all must cultivate 
an open-minded readiness to adapt themselves to the 
changed requirements of the time — even though long- 
cherished fetishes may have to be summarily 

“ scrapped ” in the process. If, to take a single 
instance, there is reason to conclude that in present 
circumstances the great body of the reading public 
would welcome new novels at a more “ popular ” 
price than that which has been orthodox within recent 
years, no merely conservative regard for the six- 
shilling form must be allowed to stand in the way 
of practical attempts to meet the demand. I am 
reminded, by the way, that between the augmented 
cost of book-production on the one hand, and the 
reduced purchasing power of the average book-buyer 
on the other, the task of adjusting prices in these 
generally “ hard-up ” times will be one of extreme 
difficulty. If it is to be accomplished with any degree 
of success, it can only be by laying aside all super- 
stitious regard for the practices and prejudices of the 
days before the war, and accepting guidance only 
from the stern logic of present-day facts. 

A point of curious interest just now' is the very 
limited popularity commanded by books dealing with 
the war. The obvious reason for this is, surely, that 
people, having already endured for nearly a year-and- 
a-half the incessant nerve-strain imposed on them by 
this awful world-tragedy, of which fresh scenes are 
unfolded to them daily by the newspapers, instinc- 
tively turn to books for mental relief, rather than for 
more word-pictures of the horrors — or even the glories 
and heroisms — of the conflict. The time for the war- 
books will come again when the greatest armed 
struggle that the world has ever seen can be written 
of in the past tense; and then, we may be sure, they 
will be poured forth in overwhelming abundance. 
Meanwhile, it is very evident that books of the kind 
have ceased to “ boom ” as they did in the earlier 
days of the w'ar. 

There is, I think, much truth in the recent com- 
plaint of a writer on literary matters that books are 
less popular as presents than they ought to be, 
because the donors so seldom take the trouble to 
ascertain in advance the kind of reading matter that 
appeals to the taste of the intended recipient of the 
gift. A good many people are under the delusion 
that they have done all that is necessary when they 
have selected as “ friendship’s offering ” some 
book which happens to be enjoying a vogue at the 
moment, and never even stop to think whether it is 
likely to be acceptable, as literature, to the particular 
person who is the objeot of their perhaps misguided 
benevolence. Others, again, make their selection 
solely in accordance with their own taste and fancy, 
being complacently confident that any work which 
pleases them must or should of necessity command 
the interest and admiration of everyone they know. 
It was on this tyrannical principle that our well- 
meaning parents and guardians used to select those 
awful “ improving ” gift-books which were wont to 
descend upon the rising generation on birthdays and 
such-like occasions in the days of Queen Victoria. 
“ Not what I like, but what he (or she) likes ” is 
really the golden rule in the matter of book-giving; 
and — since people all take pleasure in the knowledge 
that their offerings are acceptable— it is strange that 
that rule is so constantly neglected. 

It is pleasant to hear of a coming new novel by 
that tireless veteran, Miss Betham-Edwards, whose 
admirable work both *as novelist and descriptive 
writer has held the appreciation of the public for 
close upon half-a-century. She writes as cleverly and 
acceptably to-day as ever she did; and it is safe to 
predict that “ Caught in a Hurly-Burly,” which 
Smith, Elder are publishing, wi 11 show once more 
that her hand has in no wise lost its cunning. 

Perhaps it is better on this occasion to avoid the 
conventional “ Happy New' Year ” formula. But 
may 1916 bring to you and to all of us, before it 
closes, the promise — if not the dawm — of restored 
peace and returning prosperity !

AS was only to be expected, the continuance of 
the War has considerably lessened the 
number of books published during the past twelve 
months. The total of the detailed lists here given 
shows a diminution of not quite three thousand 
issues from last year’s figures. This is partly, 
no doubt, due to the request of the Government 
for economy, and in these economies books are 
always among the things that are given up first. 
Again, the large sale of the special volumes issued 
for War charitable purposes has necessarily handi- 
capped ordinary publishing. Indeed, nearly every 
publisher has had to act with caution and to hold 
back many books that were ready for issue. It 
is common knowledge that bookbinders — though 
some have been busy on Stationery Office con- 
tracts — have' been very hard hit, and that the 

printing offices which are largely engaged in print- 
ing books have been much less busy than in normal

The Waverley Book Co., 7-9, Old Bailey, E.C., 
have just published the third volume of “ The Life 
of David Lloyd George,” by Mr. J. Hugh 
Edwards, M.P., which covers the twelve years 
from 1890 to 1902, from Mr. Lloyd George’s first 
appearance in Parliament to the end of the Boer 
War, which, it will be remembered, he so stoutly 
opposed. The volume is naturally much concerned 
with his work in the Welsh Disestablishment 
question, and at the present moment, when Mr. 
Lloyd George fills so great a place in the public 
eye, this further instalment of what we may 
perhaps describe as an official biography, should 
be of more than ordinary interest. The value of 
the book is increased by an excellent selection 
of contemporary political portraits, and a photo- 
gravure portrait of the late Mr. Tom Ellis, M.P., 
provides an appropriate frontispiece. 

Messrs. Simpkin, Marshall & Co. have just 
published an interesting booklet on “ Praying 
for the Dead,” by the Rev. Bernard J. Snell, the 
well-known Congregational minister of Brixton. 
He points out that the practice was “ the un- 
broken usage of the Church of Christ in all 
countries for fifteen hundred years,” and that it 
was the Roman abuse of selling prayers for the 
release of souls from Purgatory which caused 
the Reformation in England to close the subject 
for Protestants ever since. 

Sir James Yoxall, M.P., is editing for Mr. 
Heinemann a new series of books for collectors 
called “ The Collectors’ Pocket Series.” The first 
two of these popular little books, Collecting Old 
Glass” and ‘‘Collecting Old Miniatures,” have 
been written by Sir James Yoxall himself, and 
will shortly be published at 2s. 6d. net each. They 
are designed especially for the collector of 
moderate means, and are copiously illustrated. 

Messrs. T. & T. Clark have issued a further 
volume of that well-known and useful work, 
‘‘The Greater Men and Women of the Bible.” 
Among the many important articles are Mary the 
Virgin, John the Baptist, Matthew, Nicodemus, 
Judas Iscariot, Philip, Pilate, Caiaphas, Thomas, 
Herod Antipas, and Herod the Great. The 
Editor, Dr. James Hastings, has done his work 
admirably, and the usefulness of the volume for 
all preachers and ministers can hardly be over- 

Mr. Elkin Mathews has published a short 
study on ‘‘Charlotte Bronte: the Woman,” bv 
Maude Golding. She deals at some length with 
the love relations between Charlotte and M. 
Heger, her teacher at Brussels, and she has some 
very suggestive remarks on the loneliness which 
seems to have been rather a characteristic of 
Charlotte’s position, in spite of the fame which 
her works achieved. She further emphasises the 
fact that Charlotte refused to call her iove an 
evil; indeed, on the other hand, was rather proud 
of it than otherwise. 

Mr. A. H. Moncur Sime, of Oakhurst, the 
Mount, Shrewsbury, has sent us an interesting 
little booklet entitled “ Memory and other 
Sonnets.” It includes sonnets to Shakespeare, 
Cromwell, a Thunderstorm, and a Nightingale. 
It has been very daintily printed by hand at the 
Temple Sheen Press, East Sheen. 

Mr. Heinemann will shortly publish a new book 
by Dr. Charles Sarolea, entitled “ Europe’s Debt 
to Russia.” Dr. Sarolea shows that the Russian 
people, if not the Russian Government, actually 
stand for democracy and freedom, and that the 
whole trend of the Russian policy, whether 
foreign or domestic, has been in the direction of a 
peaceful and progressive development. 

In Preparation. 

Messrs. George Allen & Unwin will shortly pub- 
lish a translation, by Mr. A. O’D. Bartholeyns. of

Sixpenny Novels. 

Messrs. Greening & Co. will publish immediately 
in their Lotus Library, translations of “ Madame 
Bovary ” and “ Salammbo,” by Gustave Flaubert. 

Messrs. Hurst & Blackett will publish imme-

week Mr. W. H. Skaggs’s book, “ German Con- 
spiracies in America,” for which Mr. Theodore 
Andrea Cook has written an introduction ; “ If There 
Must be Battles,” a little book by Miss Dorothea 
Chester Paradise, a series of letters from an 
American girl to a Canadian soldier ; “ War and the 
Ideals of Peace,” by Dr. Henry Rutgers Marshall, 
a searching enquiry into the psychological causes 
of war, and the possibility of so altering men’s 
minds as to prevent its recurrence.

remedy existing wrongs ; the retail bookseller can 
either rise to the occasion and help himself, or he 
can pay increases in prices which he cannot avoid. 

Yours truly, 



To the Editor of The Bookseller. 

Sir, — Have not the Retail Booksellers been hit 
sufficiently hard by the cheapening of books and by 
the loss of sales during the war without being bitterly 
attacked by the Publishers? The Retail Book Trade 
does not now pay working expenses, and two of the 
largest publishing firms, instead of altering their 
prices to the public, have taken off the small fraction 
of profit which the Booksellers have hitherto received. 
Why not have made all their books nett to the public, 
and thus secure a chance of living? To the Retail 
Bookseller, especially as his profits on educational 
works are far below his working expenses, cannot the 
whole of the trade protest against this harsh treat- 
ment? We are, 

Yours faithfully, 

Clifton. J. Baker & Son. 


To the Editor of The Bookseller. 

Sir, — 

“ There is a tide in the affairs of men, 

Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune ; 
Omitted, all the voyage of their life 
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.” 

Vicar Street, 




To the Editor of The Bookseller. 

Dear Sir,— Allow me to draw your readers’ and 
especially the medical publishers’ attention to the fact 
that the German Government have prohibited the ex- 
portation of medical works and medical periodicals, 
and although the German Publishers’ Association 
have applied to the War Office in Berlin to withdraw 
the restriction, it has, so far, been in vain. 

Medical periodicals— of which not less than 400 are 
being published in Germany and Austria have 
always been in great demand abroad, and in the 
countries which are at present remaining neutral, 
the leading doctors and many of the medical 
students are regular subscribers to German 

It seems to me, therefore, that there is a good 
opportunity to introduce British medical periodicals 
and British medical works on a larger scale in neutral 
countries now that German medical books, which 
are used at the neutral universities, can no longer 
be had. — Yours truly, 

20, Bedford Street, London, W.C. 
December 4, 1915. 

“ To Fortune ” — the words are intended even for 
the Bookseller. Yes, even the poor Bookseller has to 
face the inevitable rise in prices, and I write this as 
an appeal to Publisher and Bookseller alike, to grasp 
the present opportunity so that good may come out 
of evil. There never was, and probably never will be, 
a more golden opportunity than the present for the 
Book Trade to make necessary revisions. The oppor- 
tunity, and I hope it may be considered a necessity, 
to publish all books at net is now in the hands of 
the Publisher, to be taken up or for ever lost. For the 
present impoverished state of the bond fide book- 
selling business, the retailer has himself to blame. 

I might say entirely. Nevertheless, he will need 
support from the Publisher in order the better to help 
himself. What other business gives its legitimate 
profits to the public? and unless this is remedied the 
resulting dwindling of bookselling will not stay at 
the bookseller — it will extend to the publisher and 
author. For I take it that a new book should be put 
on the market and before the public through the 
Bookseller, and not left to be handled entirely by the 
library. I do not think anything but a revision of 
profits will remedy this, and the retailer is the man 
to attend to it, and, of course, he will need sup- 
porting by the publisher. The day for the 6s. novel 
seems to be on the wane. Would not a book at 
2s. 6d. net meet with far larger sales and a more 
ready demand, reaching far more purchasers than a 
book at 4s. fid. ? The author who would probably be 
affected by this would doubtless be more pleased with 
a greatly increased sale of a book at 2s. 6d. than an 
indifferent demand at 6s., and there is no doubt the 
author will need to accommodate himself to present- 
day changes. Publishers would do well, I think, to 
make an alteration, if possible, in the Annual, and 
not have twelve monthly magazines, well bound, sold 
for the same, and in many cases less than the twelve 
separate parts cost. The monthly magazine is looked 
forward to by readers, and they contain articles not to 
be found elsewhere. If the sale of the bound volume 
is -to be maintained, a working profit should be granted 
to the seller. 

This subject could be enlarged on indefinitely. I 
should like to feel that something was being done to

Notices of Books. 

The Life of Loyd Strathcona and Mount Royal, 
G.C.M.G., G.C.V.O. By Beckles Wilison. With 
sixteen full-page photogravures. (Cassell & Co.). — 
The life of a lad who commenced as a clerk in the 
Hudson Bay Company at ,£'20 a year, and who died 
High Commissioner of Canada and one of the 
wealthiest men in the world, must necessarily be worth 
writing and reading. On the whole Mr. Wilson has 
done his work well, and he has given us a fairly vivid 
picture of the three principal stages in his hero’s long 
career. His work under the Hudson Bay Company; 
the leading part he took in carrying out the great 
undertaking of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and 
the last seventeen years of his life when he repre- 
sented Canada in England, and really gained popular 
reputation in raising Strathcona’s Horse in the Boer 
War — in all these spheres his forceful and dominant 
personality made itself felt. In Labrador and the 
fur-trading districts he soon made his mark, and in 
1869 he was in control of the Hudson Bay interests in 
Montreal. Soon after he was a member of the new 
Dominion Parliament. And when the Canadian 
Government failed to find the necessary capitalists 
to construct and operate the proposed Canadian 
Pacific Railway, it was Donald Smith who was the 
driving power of the syndicate which eventually 
undertook the work, and it was probably more to him 
than to anyone else that the successful accomplish- 
ment of the task was due. The story of this trans- 
action, considering how persistently it has been 
criticised, might perhaps have been related in greater 
detail, and the reader might have been enabled to 
form a judgment as to the justice or otherwise of the 
charges made. For this no material is here available, 
but perhaps in a future edition this defect may be 
remedied. The account of his manifold activities 
when High Commissioner makes very pleasant and 
interesting reading, and the skill with which he seized 
and made the most of all opportunities which seemed 
to promise advantage to the Dominion finds ample 
illustration. The book, indeed, portrays an admirable 
combination of hard, business shrewdness, far- 
sightedness of view, and romantic good fortune, 
which can hardly fail to strike the popular imagina- 

Delane of the " Times.” Bv Sir Edward Cook. 
(Constable & Co.) — If the succeeding volumes of 
Messrs. Constable’s new series, the “ Makers of the 
Nineteenth Century,” of which Mr. Basil Williams 
is the general editor, are anything like as good as 
this inaugural volume, its complete success is suffici- 
ently assured. For everyone will admit that Delane, 
the famous Editor of the Times for thirty-six eventful 
years, has a good claim to a place among the makers 
of history during the last century. All, indeed, who 
read the admirable appreciation of the life and work 
of that prince of journalists, which Sir Edward Cook 
himself, also a distinguished member of the same 
profession, has now given to the world, will recognise 
that, for excellence of presentation, sound judgment, 
discriminating appreciation, and not least convenient 
dimensions, this new estimate, though not 
actually official, will become the standard and the 
popular biography of the great editor. It is, of course, 
as a journalist dealing with the life and work of a 
journalist that Sir Edward’s book makes its special 
appeal. It is no doubt true that Delane took no very 
commanding part in any one political event or trans- 
action, but he certainly made his paper a real influence 
on the events of the time, and that to an extent un- 
equalled elsewhere. In the limited space at our disposal 
we cannot attempt to follow Sir Edward Cook as he 
narrates the successive events and the part which 
Delane played in each. We can only cite one or two 
points by way of sampling the rest. The fact that 
Delane was throughout a master of opportunist | 

journalism, that he was able to play an independent 
part and to transfer his support as he thought best 
from one party to another, is effectively brought out. 
It was, indeed, his good fortune that while he ruled 
the paper the course of events made this not only 
possible but easy — much easier than it would have 
been during the more strenuous and exacting times 
since his death. Sir Edward Cook makes it clear 
that his hero was within his own limitations a really 
great man. At the same time he makes it equally 
clear that those limitations were real and necessarily 
produced the effects which might have been expected. 

The Fortunes of Garin: An Historical Romance.. 
By Mary Johnston. (Constable <fc Co.) — In her last 
story Miss Johnston deserted America for England 
at the time of the Civil War. She now betakes her- 
self to France in mediaeval times, where she naturally 
finds ample material for her skill in writing romance. 
The hero of her new tale, Garin de Castel Noir, is 
an excellent sample of the chivalrous knight of the 
Middle Ages. Of course, he meets and falls in love 
with his predestined princess, and in due time, when 
the tale reaches its end, he marries her and they live 
together happy ever after. The framework, the 
various scenes and incidents which make up the tale 
are all conceived and handled with the consummate 
skill and effective attraction which have placed Miss 
Johnston in the very first rank of contemporary 
novelists. She is not, perhaps, quite so entirely at 
home in the mediaeval France, which she can only 
see with the eye of imagination, as in the Southern 
States, which she knows so intimately by actual 
experience, but in spite of this inevitable drawback 
she has assimilated and reproduced in a quite wonder- 
ful manner the romantic surroundings, the lights and 
shades of the time and the country she sets herself to 
describe. Garin, who deliberately rejected the almost 
certainty of high position in the Church for the much 
more uncertain chance of knightly good fortune, is in 
every way an attractive figure, and he is started on 
his quest for success by releasing from insult a herd- 
maid, who eventually turns out to be the lady of his 
love and hopes, while her assaulter is the son of the 
great noble to whom he is subordinate. The incident 
is most ingeniously managed, and sufficiently arouses 
the appetite of the reader, whose interest and atten- 
tion are held fast till the end of the tale. 

Upsidonia. Bv Archibald Marshall. (Stanley Paul 
■<& Co.) — The main idea of Mr. Marshall’s new story is 
a country where ideas of poverty and riches are exactly 
opposite to those current all over the world. For in 
the countrv which he here imagines it is as much 
the desire of everyone to be poor, as it is here, in the 
world as we know it, to be rich. A country which 
in this all-important matter is so wholly upside down 
is very well named Upsidonia, and as soon as the 
reader is fairly launched on his paradoxical journey 
he is naturally intensely eager to learn how such a 
complete inversion of his ordinary experience is made 
to work out. It argues, at any rate, a certain 
audacity, a certain confidence in his imaginative 
power for Mr. Marshall to have conceived so unusual 
and so original a situation, and he has certainly 
handled it with considerable ability and success. At 
the same time it is fairly obvious that he is not alto- 
gether comfortable, and that the fundamental differ- 
ences of circumstance and conditions rather hamper 
and restrict the working out of the idea. We cer- 
tainly prefer the excellent presentations of life as it 
really is, which have secured for him his present wide 
popularity As a tour de force of imagination and 
constructive power the book will make a very effective 
appeal, and the striking originality of its theme is 
certain to attract the attention of a very wide circle of 
interested and eager readers.

A Day at a Time. Fresh Talks on Everyday Life 
and Religion. By the Rev. Archibald Alexander, M.A., 
B.D. — The author, who is already favourably known for 
his previous book, “ The Glory in the Grey,” tells us 
that he has written this book “ in war-time to minister 
comfort, and if it may be, to reinforce hope and faith,” 
and we may at once say that it very admirably carries 
out the intention of the author. Mr. Alexander certainly 
possesses the knack of effective and stimulating talk on 
paper ; what he has to say is always very much to the 
point. He is full of sympathy, he has a clear insight 
into the deeper parts of human nature, and withal a 
genial and kindly humour which adds force and 
attractiveness to the wise advice and sage counsel he 
gives his readers. The book is sure to prove popular 
with those to whom it is more immediately addressed. It 
is dedicated, by permission, to Admiral Jellicoe, which 
is further testimony to its usefulness and excellence.

The Pool of Gold. By Gertrude M. Foxe (Mrs. G. M. 
Foakes). — Novels about Russia are nowadays particularly 
acceptable, and i*±iss Foxe, who has already given us 
an excellent tale, “ The Russian Wife,” now gives us a 
study of Russian life and character, including some 
English people who find themselves more or less per- 
manently in Russia. Mrs. Forgood, the widow of an 
English professor, who is again the widow of a Russian 
prince, excites one’s attention as a typical example of 
the ordinary commonplace Englishwoman who remains 
much the same wherever she is placed. Vera, her step- 
daughter, has an excellent voice, and would like to be 
trained as a prima donna, but Mr. Forgood dislikes the 
idea, and in order to carry out her desire she becomes 
the wife of Prince Zaleski, an impressario who wishes to 
•exploit her abilities. Later, Michael Prosser, an English 

musician, passionate and unstable, comes into her life 
and persuades her to elope with him to England. We 
need not follow her after- fortunes, nor need we relate 
how matters settle themselves. Miss Foxe certainly con- 
structs her plot with considerable skill ; she draws her 
characters with a firm and sure hand, and throughout 
very skilfully reproduces the atmosphere and surround- 
ings of the tale both in Russia and England. She has 
given us a story which is sure to be popular at any time, 
and particularly just now when Russia and things 
Russian naturally arouse a widespread interest among 
the novel-reading public.

In Khaki for the King. A Tale of the Great War. 
By Escott Lynn. With six Illustrations by Norman 
Ault. — Stories of the war to-day are not so much fiction 
as hard, terrible facts, and Mr. Escott Lynn reminds his 
readers that his story, written often in brief spells off 
duty, is only the hard, naked truth. The two heroes, 
Oliver Hastings and Vivian Drummond, are typical 
young Englishmen, rather more than the ordinary youths 
that Mr. Lynn describes them. They have, of course, a 
very exciting time, both in Germany, just when the war 
breaks out before they join the colours, and afterwards 
when they share in the fighting on the western front. 
Among the many stories of the war this will take a 
prominent place, and is sure to find a wide approbation. 

At School With the Roundheads. By Elsie Jeanette 
Oxenham. With four Illustrations by Harold C. 

Phyllis McPhilemy. A School Story. By May 
Baldwin. With four Illustrations by W. A. Cuthbertson. 

The Roundheads in Miss Oxenham’s new story are not 
the soldiers on the Parliament side in the great Civil 
War, but only the schoolboys at Redburn School, where 
Miss Davies, the aunt of the three heroines of the tale, 
Olwen, Gwenfa, and Nesta Davis, is matron housekeeper. 

January 14, 1916 



They go there to spend their holidays, when owing to 
an accident some of the boys unexpectedly come back. 
Boys and girls before very long chum up together, and 
when the holidays are over the girls are allowed to stay 
and share in the regular work of the school. This is 
certainly unusual, and would not, we think, often happen; 
but, allowing the licence, the various scenes and incidents 
are not impossible, and they are skilfully used so as to 
make a very pleasant and interesting story. Miss May 
Baldwin is already well known to many girl readers as 
a popular writer of popular girl school stories, and her 
name on the title-page of any book makes any further 
recommendation quite superfluous. “ Phyl ” McPhilemy, 
though rather a harum-scarum, irresponsible young lady, 
is really a good sort, and though at times she is trouble- 
some and 11 the most audacious young lady at the Priory,” 
yet all her schoolmates are fond of her, and she became 
and remained the most popular girl in the school. 

From Messrs. T. & T. Clark. 

The Booh of Revelation. By the Rev. John T. Dean, 
M.A. — The Book of Revelation has always needed 
special explanation and exposition, for the various 
problems it raises are important and by no means easily 
solved. Its inclusion therefore in the publishers’ use- 
ful Handbooks for Bible Classes and Private Students 
will be eagerly welcomed, and students will thank Mr. 
Dean for the completeness and care with which he has 
explained the principal points of controversy. He has no 
difficulty in concluding that it was written when the 
hostility of the Roman Empire to the infant Church was 
particularly bitter, and that it was written with the 
practical aim of stimulating the Christians of Asia to 
face with courage and endurance a situation pf the 
utmost gravity. As to the date, Mr. Dean is inclined to 
place it in the last quarter of the first century, while 
the traditional view that it was written by Saint John 
is, he thinks, hardly tenable. He has made full use of 
Professor Charles’ work on the Jewish Apocalypses, 
which furnish +he key to its imagery, and he insists on 
its central message of strength and courage to all who 
are fighting the battle of the Lord. The outline and 
analysis are very clear and intelligible, and the whole 
book is of the greatest possible help and assistance to 
the careful and interested student.

Instruction in the Machine Gun. Compiled by Lieut. 
D. M‘G. James, Yorkshire Regiment. — The importance 
of the machine gun has been one of the special factors 
of the present war, and the issue of this useful manual 
will now be more than ever welcomed by those officers 
who wish to make themselves as efficient as possible. 

From Messrs. T. C. & E. C. Jack. 

Toy-Making at Home : How to make a Hundred Toys 
from Odds and Ends. By Morley Adams. — Now that the 
cheap toys from Germany are no longer available it is 
very helpful for boys and girls to be told how to make 
their own toys, as there is always an added pleasure 
and satisfaction in toys which are home-made. Mr. 
Adams here tells his young readers how to utilise to 
the best advantage odds and ends which are usually 
thrown away, such as matches, match boxes, cotton reels, 
cocoa tins, cigar boxes and the like. Many of the toys 
here described can be made at very small expense, and 
the definite hints here given will often be found useful 
in handicraft classes. 

From Mr. John Lane. 

Bildad the Quill-Driver. By William Caine. — If we 
find it difficult to characterise shortly Mr. Caine’s new 
novel, that is not necessarily any reflection on-fits purpose 
or intention. It is rather a testimony to the originality 
of the idea and the skill with which it has been carried 
out. Bildad the hero would seem to have been moulded 
rather after the pattern of the famous hero of Morier’s 
famous novel “ Hadji Baba of Ispahan,” and placed 
necessarily in a rather more modern and up-to-date setting. 
Bildad is curiously conceited, in spite of the fact that 
Ogga, who loved him at first, left him as soon as she 
was able. The various adventures which make up the 
bulk of the book are ingeniously humorous, and provide 
the reader with much genuine entertainment. 

French Novelists of To-Day. By Winifred Stephens. 
Second Series. — The appearance of a second series of 
Miss Winifred Stephens’ studies of modern French 
novelists may be taken to indicate the success of her 
previous volume, and we need therefore say but little

as to its successor. The seven novelists who are now 
included — Marcelle Tinayre, Romain Rolland, Jerome 
Tharoud, Jean Tharoud, Rene Boylesve, Pierre Mille, 
and Jean Aicard — have been chosen mainly because in 
their works are reflected most clearly the various 
tendencies of life and thought in France in the years 
immediately before the war. These various apprecia- 
tions are preceded by an introduction which discusses 
with full knowledge and sound critical judgment the 
French novel as it was on the eve of the war. This essay 
no less than those on the individual novelists should do 
much to help the English reader to realise the special 
value of the French novel, while the full and careful 
bibliographies deserve a special word of commendation. 

Victor Victorious. By Cecil Starr Johns. — Since Mr. 
Anthony Hope set the fashion, the creation of imaginary 
kingdoms, possibly in some part of Europe such as the 
Balkans, has afforded writers of picturesque romance 
with an admirable framework for their fiction. The 
concealment or kidnapping of kings or possible heirs- 
apparent, or the usurpation of unscrupulous relatives, 
and the general intrigue which all such matters involve, 
manifestly provide inexhaustible material. Most of these 
romances may be said to have been all the same, with, 
of course, differences in detail. Mr. Johns has now 
added his contribution to this section of current fiction, 
and we need only say that his story is fully as interest- 
ing and effective as any of its competitors. How Victor 
Stephens, the real King of Rudarlia, was brought up 
in England as a young gentleman of a private station ; 
how after a time circumstances take him to his own 
country, where the mystery of his position is disclosed, 
and how, after the usual difficulties and dangers, he is 
successful and regains his rights, and what is equally 
important finds a loving wife, is all described in the 
orthodox fashion, and makes a story that is lively, 
actual, and entertaining, and holds the reader’s eager 
interest till the last page is reached. The book thoroughly 
deserves a wide popularity, and is quite certain to satisfy 
fully the most exacting expectations. 

From Messrs. T. Werner Laurie, Ltd. 

The Story of Islington and Finsbury. By W. Vere 
Mingard. — The first volume of the publisher’s new 
Y Local History Series ” tells in brief yet adequate 
fashion the main points in the history of that part, just 
outside the northern boundary of the City, wtrch is now 
known as Islington and Finsbury. Beginning in the far-off 
times wh-n the Romans held Britain, Mr. Mingard takes 
his readers through successive stages of the Plantagenets, 
the Tudors, the Stuarts, the Great Plague and the Great 
Fire, the latter of which seems to have very materially 
benefited Clerkenwell through the period when Islington 
was a competitor of Bath and Tunbridge Wells as a 
health resort, down to our own day, when the district is 
mainly notable for its busy traffic and teeming popula- 
tion. The religious houses, the Charterhouse. St. Mary’s 
Nunnery, the Priories of St. John and St. Bartholomew 
naturally receive careful attention, and the great work 
of Sir Hugh Myddelton in his successful construction of 
the New River is adequately described. The two 

chapters on “ Islington and Finsbury a Hundred Years 
Ago” are exceedingly interesting, and the contrast 
between the conditions then and to-day is very effectively 
brought out. The story altogether is excellently told, 
and the illustrations, many reproductions of old 
engravings, have been carefully chosen. If the volumes 
which follow maintain the standard which Mr. Mingard 
bas reached, the success and popularity of the new 
series would seem to be safely assured. 

From Messrs. John Long, Ltd. 

The New Dawn. By George Wouil. — His previous 
books have alreadv made it quite clear that Mr. Wouil 
has the qualities necessary to ensure him a place in the 
front rank of our younger novelists. His previous books 
“ Sowing Clover ” and “Paul Moorhouse ” deservedly 
earned high praise, and his new book will, we feel sure, 
still further enhance his growing reputation. The chief 
characters are Londoners who have found their way to 
the Valley of the Clyde, and Arthur Lewman who has 
come from London to be the assistant at the small 
Baotist chapel at Bartocher, and Mrs. Satterthwaite, the 
newly-married wife of the pastor, the Rev. Ezra Satter- 
thwaite. are both very carefully and vividly drawn. 
Ruby Satterthwaite, before her marriage, had been an 
actress and had infatuated a young man named 
Halvey Brown. When she reached Bartocher she found 
that Plalvey had taken over a business as newsagent. 

We need not detail the plot or the incidents of the tale, 
for it will be seen the opening scenes we have outlined 
provide a capable novelist with ample material. The 
description of the various persons in the village to whom 
we are introduced is lifelike and realistic, and certain 
phases of religious feeling and fervour are presented 
with considerable power and genuine insight into 
character and temperament. The whole book, indeed, is 
one which leaves a very definite impression on the 
mind, and many of those who have read it once will be 
very glad to read it a second time. 

Harmony Hall. A Story for Girls. By Marion Hill. 
—A new book by the writer of that popular and suc- 
cessful story “The Lure of Crooning Water” is sure to 
excite eager anticipations, and for English readers the 
apparent inconsistency of some of the incidents related 
with the ordinary habits and methods of English life 
will only prove an added attraction. At the same time 
we can hardly think it likely that an American editor 
would so easily entrust the editorship and management 
of his lady’s page to a writer who was only a young 
maidservant, nor do we think it more probable that she 
should at once develop the necessary qualities for the 
successful accomplishment of such a task. Still we need 
not be too hypercritical, and the author has certainly 
drawn a very courageous, capable and attractive heroine, 
and the book is at least an illustration of what can be 
done by persistence, energy and determination. As 
might be expected from the writer, the story is throughout 
very attractive and interesting, and is sure to prove as 
great a favourite among girl readers here as it is on the 
other side of the Atlantic. 

Boy' s Father : A Tale of South Africa. By John 
Ascott. — A striking novel by a new author always 
attracts special attention and interest, and Mr. John 
Ascott mav certainly be congratulated on the undoubted 
excellence of his first venture. The conditions of South 
African life and society amid which the scenes are 
placed are vividly and realistically drawn, and while 
every reader must regret that Mark Bagnall, the assistant 
resident magistrate, was unwise to marry the obviously 
mercenary Lily. Flowers, the circumstances as here pre- 
sented make it intelligible. When the little son dce» 
come the contrast between his love for his father and his 
mother’s indifference and selfishness is very clearly 
brought out, so that one is really quite glad when Mrs. 
Bagnall meets with ' her fate through her unfeeling 
selfishness and cruelty, after she had allowed the child 
to die through her heartless negligence. It is satis- 
factory to learn in the last pages that Mark Bagnall was 
at last able to repair his original mistake, and finds in 
Muriel Galbraith a wife whose love makes some com 
pensation for the trouble he had passed through. Tha 
episode of the tragic sinking of the great liner, the 
Colossus, is very vividly told, and graphically reproduces 
the real tragedy of the Titanic disaster. The story is a 
distinct success and at once places the author on a level 
of achievement very distinctly above the average. 

From Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston & Co. 

The Russian Al-phabet, Described and Phonetically 
Explained. By M. B. Kanachy-Smith. — The author, 
who has already given us an excellent Russian grammar 
in his “ Lessons in Russian,” here explains in a shilling 
booklet the modern Russian alphabet, which now con- 
sists of thirty-five letters. The -various letters are simply 
and easily exnlained, and as a help for beginners the 
little book mav be very warmly commended. 

Midsummer Magic. By Walter Bamfylde. — There 
seems to be a country legend that if on midsummer night 
a maid wishes to be wed, she must, after certain 
preliminary rituals, set a meal for one on her table, 
and sit away herself out of sight. “ If it is fated that 
she’s to marry that year, the young man will walk in 
through the open door, eat the supper, bow to her, and 
go out, never saying a word.” Julia Carden, out of a 
certain curiosity or bravado, tries the charm. Mr. Jasper 
Barrow, without any definite intention, happens to come 
in and eats the supper, and, of course, the rest of the 
tale is occupied in so ordering the course of events that 
the superstition is verified in his case. How it all comes 
about makes a very romantic story, the various, incidents 
of which are handled with great skill and ingenuity. 
The subordinate tale of the love of Sophie Watkin and 
Adam Stone adds materially to the interest, and the 
story may be pronounced a complete success. Mr. 
Bamfylde raised much expectations by his previous novel 
“ The' Uplanders,” and they have been more than realised

Nymphet. By J. L. Carter. — Claude Kempton, a 
popular playwright and novelist, who is rather bored 
with his success, goes to a Sussex seaside resort for a 
holiday. An attractive young lady is a fellow passenger. 
He makes up his mind to discover who she is, and, if 
possible, to make her his wife, as he has suddenly 
believed in the efficacy of “ love at first sight.” In his 
quest he meets with her younger sister, Winnie, who is 
paddling about in the water, and whom he at once 
christens “ Nymphet,” though why she rather than the 
other should give its title to the book we do not quite 
understand. However, it will be enough to say that 
before we reach the end Kempton has succeeded in his 
quest, has won her love, and we may leave them, sure 
that they will be happy ever after. The story, though 
based on a rather far-fetched foundation, carries with 
it a certain individual if rather indefinite charm, and 
the characters of Mrs. Plumb, Kempton’s landlady, at 
Littleham, and Mr. John Strutt, the very unusual (indeed 
almost unique) Littleham cabdriver, add an element of 
quaint individuality and humour which pleasantly 
varies the main course of the story.

The Pandow Princes. By Wallace Gandy. — This 
recent addition to the publishers’ well-known series of 
English Literature for Secondary Schools, issued under 
the general editorship of Mr. J. H. Fowler, one of the 
Masters at Clifton College, is practically a version pre- 
pared for school use of the great Indian epic, the 
“ Maha-bharata,” the origin of which is lost in anti- 
quity. Mr. Gandy has put together the story with much 
skill and judgment. He has done the necessary abridg- 
ment and compression with great care, and he has 
throughout preserved the due sense of proportion. The 
introduction and notes provide all that the schoolboy 
needs for the Drooer understanding of the tale, while the 
glossary and the questions and subjects for essays sug- 
gested at the end are very helpful. The list of “ Helps 
to Further Study ” mentions the most available trans- 
lations, and will be very useful for any boy who is 
sufficiently interested to desire further knowledge and 

From Messrs. Stanley Paul & Co. 

Because of Phoebe. By Kate Horn. — The many novel 
readers who have so thoroughly enjoyed Miss Kate 
Horn’s previous books, with their gay wisdom and 
delightful humour, will eagerly welcome a new book 
from her skilful pen. We may at once say that her 
latest is nearly if not quite as good as its predecessors. 
Mrs. Desmond, the delightful, attractive, irresponsible, 
unpractical person is a quite exceptional creation, and 
everyone will wish to make her acquaintance in spite of 
her perfectly obvious deficiencies. The retired Major 
Hythe, who woos her so devotedly, and is at last 
rewarded for his persistence, is equally well drawn, 
while the reader can hardly help a quiet satisfaction 
when he finds that her daughter Phoebe, who thinks 
herself so much more worldly wise and practical than 

her mother, only barely escapes capture by a fortune 
hunter, and eventually finds refuge in a ladies’ settle- 
ment. The particular means by which Roger Fairless 
was unmasked is ingeniously managed, and little 
Percy Desmond, Mrs. Desmond’s small grandson, is one 
of the most lovable children we have met with for 
many a long day. The whole story is a complete success, 
and is quite certain to become immediately popular with 
the novel-reading public. 

FantSmas. By Pierre Souvestre and Marcel Allain. — 
Fantomas is an unseen, undiscoverable murderer with 
so many crimes to his discredit that he is, whether rightly 
or wrongly, accepted as the perpetrator of any murder 
which is more mysterious and inexplicable than ordinary. 
Here we have fully worked out the particulars of these 
murders in which the French detective police feel quite 
sure he is involved without being able absolutely to 
substantiate their suspicions. At the same time the whole 
book furnishes an ample budget of very exciting reading 
packed with incident and adventure, as might be expected. 
In the last we find that he manages to palm off upon his 
gaolers a perfectly innocent actor who so closely 
resembles him that the mistake is perhaps possible, 
though we should be rather loth to believe that the help 
of police officials in France is so easily purchased as the 
tale would seem to imply. However this may be, lovers 
of sensational stories will find it exactly what they desire, 
and we have no doubt that it will quickly become exceed- 
ingly popular with that section of the English-reading

Pitman's Shorthand and Typewriting Year Book for

reached its twenty-fifth issue makes any detailed com- 
mendation hardly necessary. Its general features are

and the information as regards shorthand and type- 
writing is authoritative and very helpful. The present 
edition contains some entirely new articles on 
“ Ribbons, Pads and Carbons,” “ How to Punctuate.” 
Careful accounts of the London Union of Commercial 
Institutes, the Sheffield Commercial Teachers’ Union 
and other subjects make it still more informing and

William de Colchester, Abbot of Westminster. By 
E. H. Pearce. — This account of a fifteenth century 
Abbot of Westminster was originallv delivered as a 
lecture at the Royal Institution and has since been 
somewhat enlarged. Canon Pearce has drawn most of 
his information from the Archives of Westminster Abbey, 
and he has Droduced a very lifelike and vivid picture 
of a man who was eminent in his day, though it can 
hardly be said that he left any enduring impress upon 
English h’storv. It is an exceedingly interesting and 
informing sketch, and we hope that Canon Pearce may 
be induced to give us other portraits of Westminster 
worthies of equal attraction and interest. The half dozen 
illustrations deser-e a word of hearty praise.

T HE two essentials to the effi- 
cient conduct of a Valuation are

THE WINDSOR for January. 



NEW ZEALAND AND THE WAR By The Hon. Thomas Mackenzie 

THE Y.M.C.A. AND THE WAR By Charles T. Bateman 


Stories by 







FAITH TRESILIAN Eden Phillpotts 

A vivid story of love and high adventure on the Cornish coast. Mr. Phillpotts’ books are quite unlike those 
of any other novelist, and his latest, strongly individual, is likely to prove itself one of the best novels of the year. 

THE BORDERER Harold Bindloss 

Academy. — “ This author’s novels are terse, powerful, yet graceful, showing intimate knowledge and acute 
observation, never overweighted with description, yet containing many delightful pictures.” 


Mr. Paul Trent’s stories, “The Vow” and “The Foundling,” were powerful tales with a motive. “Bentley’s 
Conscience,” as its title indicates, is of the same school. 


There is no lack of excitement in this brightly written novel, which holds the attention and interest of the 
reader to the end. The popular Author of “Sanders of the River” again displays his gifts of originality and 
crisp dialogue.

the publication will be as indispensable as ever.

The Special Spring Announcements Number of 

The Bookseller will be published on March 3. 
Publishers will much oblige by sending in the lists 
of their announcements at once, so that they may 
be properly dealt with. 

The London Booksellers, at a fully representative 
meeting, have unanimously decided that the 
maximum discount to be allowed to the public 
upon ALL SUBJECT Books, including six shilling 
novels, should be twopence in the shilling. This 
decision is to take effect as from January 24 last, 
and it is hoped that every bookseller will adhere 
to this arrangement. 

The Council of the Associated Booksellers 

suggests that booksellers in those towns which are 
not connected with any Branch of the Association 
should be requested to meet together and resolve 
on the best line of action to be taken to meet the 
publishers’ increased charges. Mr. Edwin Pearce 
(Messrs. Barnicott & Pearce, Taunton), the Hon. 
Secretary, will be glad to send on application par- 
ticulars of what has been done in many towns, and 
a list of publishers who have given notice of 
alteration of terms. ' 

The Musson Book Company of Toronto notify 
that their London House has been removed to 2^- 
27. Sayer Street, New Kent Road, S.E., where 
they have much greater facilities for their in- 
creasing trade. The new premises are within two 
minutes’ walk of the Elephant and Castle Station 
on the City and South London and Bakerloo 

Messrs. T. C. & E. C. Jack announce that they 
have made arrangements for amalgamating their 
business with that of Messrs. Thomas Nelson & 
Sons, Ltd. In association with Messrs. Nelson, 
the business will be carried on and developed on 
its present lines by the formation of a limited com- 
pany under the title of T. C. & E. C. Jack, Ltd. 
Mr. Thomas Chater Jack and Mr. Edwin Chisholm 
Jack, the sole partners in the existing business, 
will become Directors of this Company. The head 
office of the firm will be moved to No. 1, Park 
Road, Edinburgh ; but the London address will, in 
the meantime, be 67, Long Acre, W.C., as at 

The Foreign Booksellers’ Association. — In view 
of the decision of French publishers of “ Livres 
Classiques ’’ to make an increased charge of ic 
per cent. on these books, the Associa- 

tion has decided to increase the prices of 
these books bv one penny per franc of the pub- 
lished price. 

Messrs. J. M. Dent & Sons announce that, owing 
to the increased cost of material and labour caused 
by the War, they are compelled to increase the 
price of the volumes of “ Everyman’s Library.” 
They are anxious that the extra charge should be 
as small as possible, and are therefore charging 
only one penny in the shilling extra on each of the 
different styles of binding. The costs of the various 
editions will therefore be: Cloth, is. id. net per 
volume; Leather, 2s. 2d. net per volume; Ban- 
croft, is. 7kl. net per volume, and Quarter Pig- 
skin, 2s. 2d. net per volume. 


February ii, 1916 

Messrs. Clowes & Sons, Ltd., announce that a 
Second Supplement for “ Hymns Ancient and 
Modern ” has been prepared, and will be pub- 
lished on March 1st next. It contains 141 
Hymns intended for use with the Old Edition, and 
will be issued in various sizes, particulars of 
which are given in our advertisement pages. 

I.A.A.B. — The Committee of this active and 
useful organisation was able to present to the 
membership at the Annual Meeting, held at the 
Golden Cross Hotel, on January 24, at which Mr. 
Gregory presided, a report which, considering the 
present state of affairs, is certainly very satisfac- 
tory. The membership is returned as 96 in London, 
99 in the country, and 42 in Allied and neutral 
countries. It is pleasant to be told that book-selling 
has not been affected so badly as some callings, 
and that the values of books sold in the auction 
rooms have been well maintained, proving that the 
demand for them still continues. In consequence 
of the war the usual Annual Dinner was not held, 
and the usual entertainments and lectures have not 
taken place. One hundred and twenty-seven Appli- 
cation Fees have been paid, and accounts collected 
from Canada, Egypt, France, India, Newfoundland 
and the United States, thus evidencing the great 
usefulness of this part of the work of the Associa- 
tion. The Association took an active part in the 
agitation, which fortunately proved successful, 
against the proposed abolition of the halfpenny 
postage, and it has suggested to the Chief Com- 
missioner of Police that the new Regulations re- 
quiring shops to which letters and parcels may be 
addressed to be registered with the police 
should be continued after the war is ended. The 
Report also gives several instances when the Asso- 
ciation has proved useful in the case of unsatis- 
factory would-be customers. Indeed, members of 
the trade ought to consider membership as quite 
indispensable. During the year, Mr. E. D. Dring, 
of Mr. Bernard Quaritch’s, was elected a member 
of the Committee. At the annual meeting, the 
Report was adopted. Mr. George Gregory, of 
Bath, the President, was unanimously re-elected 
for a second year. The following retiring members 
of the Committee, Messrs. Marston, Mayhew, 
Murray, Myers, Robson, Sawyer, Stevens, Thorpe, 
Waters (Leamington), Webb (Dublin), H. S. 

\ oung (Liverpool), Barnard (Tunbridge Wells), 
Barrett (Ipswich), Blackwell (Oxford), Bowes, 
(Cambridge), Downing (Birmingham), Isaacs 
(Brussels), McDonough (Albany, U.S.A.), were 
unanimously re-elected, as also were the Hon. 
Treasurer, Mr. Chatto, and the Hon. Secretary, 
Mr. F. Karsake, both gentlemen being very 
heartily thanked for their services. The Secretary 
was requested to write to Mrs. Daniell, sympa- 
thising with her on the illness of Mr. Daniell, and 
Mr. Gregory read a letter from the War Office 
stating that second-hand books may now be sent 
by post to European neutral countries. 

Messrs. W. Green & Son, Ltd., and Messrs. 
T. C. & E. C. Jack have resigned their member- 
ship of the Publishers’ Association. 

Messrs. Raphael Tuck & Sons, Ltd., have 
arranged to show important exhibits at the Board 
of Trade Exhibition at the South Kensington 
Museum (February 21 to March 3), and also at 
the London Fair and Market at the Agricultural 
Hall in March.

British Baedekers. — It is announced that 
arrangements have been made for the preparation 
of a new and important series of British and Con- 
tinental Guide Books, which it is hoped will super- 
sede the well-known series of Baedeker’s Guide 
Books, in the same way as that series has gained 
its apparently predominant position over its 
English rivals. It is intended that the 
new series shall recapture the position of 
supremacy previously held by English guide 
books. The new Guide Books will be an all-British 
production, and that fact will, no doubt, appeal 
successfully to our travellers and tourists and those 
of the Allies. They will be as cheap as the 
Baedekers, no advertisements will be accepted, and 
in paper, print and material format, they will be 
more than equal to their competitors. Mr. Findlay 
Muirhead, for many years the English co-editor 
of Baedeker, has terminated his engagement, and 
will be the Editor of the new series, and his late 
colleague and fellow co-editor, Dr. J. F. Muirhead, 
will actively co-operate. A company with substan- 
tial backing, to be known as Muirhead Guide 
Books, Ltd., has been formed to carry out the 
undertaking. It has acquired the full rights of 
Macmillan’s Guides and of Murray’s Continental 
Handbooks, not with the view of re-issuing them 
in their present form, but as sources of information 
and material for an entirely new series on modern 
and practical lines, amply equipped with maps and 
plans, thoroughly up-to-date, and adapted to all 
the needs of modern travel and touring. The new 
Guides will be issued in two languages, French and 
English, and will be published by Messrs. 
Macmillan & Co. ; but the date of issue must neces- 
sarily depend on the progress of the war. We are 
quite sure that all booksellers will do their best to 
ensure the complete success of so national and 
patriotic an enterprise. 

Messrs. Simpkin, Marshall & Co., in compliance 
with the instructions of an anonymous donor, have 
sent a batch of fifty copies of “ Jarrold’s Jest 
Book ” to our soldiers at the front, who are sure 
to appreciate the gift.

The Supply of Paper. — Some anxiety and appre- 
hension was naturally felt by the various trades 
which are mainly dependent on an adequate 
supply of paper at the announced intention on the 
part of the Government to restrict materially the 
import of wood pulp and other commodities essen- 
tial for paper-making. Paper, however, is such 
a necessary factor for the continuance and suc- 
cessful working of so many subsidiary trades and 
manufactures that we feel sure that the Govern- 
ment will not take any serious steps in this direc- 
tion until absolutely compelled by the extremest 
necessity. We do not think matters have, as yet 
at any rate, reached that critical stage, and, for 
the present at least, we are content to believe that, 
although some restrictions on importation may be 
unavoidable, no actual paper famine need be 
feared. We have little doubt that sufficient sup- 
plies of paper will be forthcoming to maintain, 
with due caution and economy, the many im- 
portant trades for which paper is so essential. 

Higher Prices for Books. — It must now be suffi- 
ciently clear both to the bookseller and the book- 
buying public that the increase of prices, which 
has already reached nearly every article of everyday 
consumption, must at once be applied to books. 
We feel sure, indeed, that the public, while no 
doubt enjoying its customary grumble, will philo- 
sophically accept the unavoidable necessities of the 
situation. We hope, in common with our cor- 
respondents, that the desired result may be largely 
brought about by making all books net which are 
subject to discount. If the result is, as we should 
expect, the permanent and universal establish- 
ment of the net system, the booksellers after the 
war will have found some compensation for the 
difficulties through which they now have to pass. At 
the same time it is, of course, only fair that books 
which are at present net should be increased in 
price in the same proportion. We will 1 only 
express our full confidence that all concerned — 
publishers, booksellers, and the bookbuying 
public — will recognise the urgent need for common 
action. We would, therefore, strongly urge 
that all should effectively co-operate for the 
common good, and that the isolated action of 
individuals, which has done such untold harm in 
the past, will not be allowed to complicate the 

Capt. John Hay Beith, of the Argyll and Suther- 
land Highlanders, better known by his pen name 
of “Ian Hay,” has been awarded the Military 
Cross. Another writer, the anonymous author of 
“ The Diary of a Nursing Sister on the Western 
Front,” published by Messrs. Blackwoods, has just 
received the Royal Red Cross Decoration, First 

Company Sergeant-Major Dillingham, who is 

with the British Forces “ somewhere in France,” 
has been awarded the Distinguished Conduct 
Medal. Before he joined the colours he was a 
warehouseman in the employ of Messrs. T. Nelson 
& Sons, London. 

Lance-Corporal Samuel Cottage, who has been 
for some months at the Western Front, and has 
been reported as missing, writes under the nom de 
plume of George Acorn. His first novel, “ One of 
the Multitude,” was very favourably received, and 
his second, “ The Driving Force ” was published 
last July by Messrs. lohn Long, Ltd. 

Booksellers’ Provident Institution. — Mr. C. J. 

Longman presided at the monthly meeting of the 
Board of Directors, held at Stationers’ Hall, on 
Wednesday, January 19, when the sum of ^112 
13s. 2d. was granted for the relief of members and 
widows of members, and the receipt of the fol- 
lowing donations was reported : — Messrs. Riving- 
tons, ^3 3s. ; Mr. Edward Arnold, ^5 ; Messrs. 
Spottiswoode and Co., Ltd., jQi is. ; Eyre and 
Spottiswoode, Ltd., £ 2 2 s. ; Mr. H. C. Sotheran, 
;£i is. ; Mr. J. C. Francis, ^3 3s. ; Messrs. George 
Philip & Son, Ltd., £2 2s. ; Printers’ Pie Trust 
(through Mrs. W. Hugh Spottiswoode), ^13 
is. 8d. ; Mr. Bernard Quaritch, £2 2s. It was 
announced that Mr. John Buchan had kindly con- 
sented to address the members and their friends on 
the occasion of the Annual General Meeting- on 
Friday, March 3. Mr. Buchan is a member of the 
firm of Messrs. T. Nelson & Sons, and the author 
of Nelson’s History of the War. He will take as 
his subject “The Future of the War.” The 
Directors present at the meeting were:— 
Messrs. J. R. Blades, J. Cooper, J. Foster, 

C H. Hollingsworth, F. J. James, W. H. 
Jelpke, W. A. Kelk, A. S. Lewis, W. 

Longman, J. Meade, A. W. Nott, A. J. Sabin, E. 
Shailis, F. W. Smith, W. H. Smith, J. E. 
Stroulger, R. E. Taylor, E. G. White. The 

annual report for the past year, which will 

then be presented for adoption, shows that both 
the receipts and expenditure are less than for the 
previous year, ^2,013 6s. 5c!., as compared with 
£2 , 132 15s. 6d. for the former, and ,£1,472 14s. 9d. 
compared with £1,604 14s. iod. for the latter. At 
the same time, it is satisfactory to note that the 
income from subscriptions and donations reached 
£674 2s. 7d., and that the sum of £398 10s. has 
been converted into 4^ per cent. War Stock. Four 
members joined during the year, two were lost 
through death, three resigned, and two were 
removed for non-payment of subscriptions. The 
Directors record with sincere regret the death in 
action of Second-Lieutenant John Harris Miles, 
son of Mr. F. H. Miles, Trustee, who was for 
several years an Auditor. Special Christmas 
gifts, it is noted, have been again distributed 
among beneficiaries of the Institution on the 
Permanent and Temporary Lists through the 
kindness of the President, Mr. C. J. Longman ; 
the Treasurer, Mr. W. E. Green ; Mr. H. H. 
Hodgson and Mr. Frederick Macmillan, Trustees, 
and Messrs. J. Archibald & Sons, publishers of 
The Bookseller. The thanks of the Directors 
are also accorded to Mr. C. R. Rivington for 
valuable legal assistance, to the Honorary 
Medical Officers, the Honorary Secretary, and the 
Honorary Accountant for their valuable services, 
to the Editors of the Athenceum, The Bookseller, 
the Publishers’ Circular, the Newsagent and 
Booksellers’ Review, to Messrs. Sampson Low, 
Marston & Co., Ltd., and to the Publishers’ 
Association, for free advertisements, and the 
Stationers’ Company for the continual use of 
their Hall. 

Messrs. Hutchinson & Co. will publish imme- 
diately “Tasker Jevons: The Real Story,” a new 
novel by Miss May Sinclair. 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., will issue at once 
“ In the High Woods,” a new novel by 
T Goodridge Roberts, author of “ Love on Smoky 
River. ” 



February ii, 1916 

Manchester and District Booksellers’ and 
Stationers’ Association. — There was a strong 
muster at the last Committee meeting of this Asso- 
ciation, Mr. F. Johnson (Williams & Norgate) 
presiding. The Acting-Secretary, Mr. F. J. 
Barlow (S.P.C.K.), presented a statement of 
accounts in connection with a whist drive held in 
aid of the British Red Cross Fund, and reported the 
satisfactory balance of ^3 5s., which sum the 
Hon. Treasurer was instructed to remit accord- 
ingly. So successful was this Social Evening that 
the Committee unanimously decided to accede to 
the request of many members and arrange another 
whist drive — this time in aid of the British and 
Foreign (excluding Germans and Turks) Sailors’ 
Society. The date fixed is Saturday, February 12, 
at Smallman’s Restaurant, Deansgate, Man- 
chester. Commence at 6.30 p.m. prompt. Tickets, 
is. 6d. each. A letter of gratitude and thanks was 
read from the widow of the member who died 
last year and on behalf of whose family a fund 
was raised. The Hon. Treasurer reported that the 
weekly sum could be continued for some months. 
After discussion upon the question of Hon. Secre- 
tary, a sub-committee consisting of Mr. F. 
Johnson (the President) and Mr. Billinge (Cooper, 
Denison & Walkden) was appointed to interview 
a well-known member in the stationery trade. The 
request was unanimous, and it is to be hoped that 
he will accept the post. 

A Correspondent writes to protest against the 
expressed intention of several education authori- 
ties to discontinue during the war the giving of 
the usual prizes. This is, of course, excused on 
the usual plea of economy, or sometimes the 
money thus “ saved ” is to be handed over to one 
of the many war relief funds. We are very glad 
to endorse our correspondent’s protest, and to 
point out that, though a small amount may, per- 
haps, be “ saved,” it can only be at the price of 
a very great loss in the spiritual work and the 
mental activities of our school boys and school 
girls. As the children concerned are very largely 
the children of the working classes, the school 
prizes they may win are often the only books 
of real value they are able to possess. It encour- 
ages in them the love of reading and the desire 
to possess books. It is books that help the de- 
velopment of individuality, of personality, and 
nothing does more towards this end than the pos- 
session of a prize book, the winning of which 
is itself very distinctly an important element in 
raising and keeping up the general level of school 
work. It is unfortunate that education is still 
so little valued in England that whenever any so- 
called “saving” or economy is suggested, it is 
always the school and the school children which 
have to suffer, and by consequence and in the 
same degree the future efficiency of the nation is 
hindered and handicapped. 

Mr. T. Fisher Unwin has just issued “ In Slums 
and Society,” by Canon James Adderley ; “A 
History of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers,” by Mr. 
Howel Thomas; a popular Shilling Edition of 
“ The Beetle,” by Richard Marsh. 

The University Tutorial Press has just pub- 
lished its well-known London Matriculation Direc- 
tory for January, 1916. It contains, as usual, 'the 
examination papers recently set with answers by 
the tutors of the College, and many useful hints. 

An Esteemed Correspondent, who recently 
retired after fifty years’ work in bookselling, tells 
us that he has been comparing notes with a con- 
temporary, who has also retired after active work 
for about the same period as a blacksmith. He 
finds, to his sorrow, that his working expenses 
as a bookseller have been more than ten times as 
great as those of his friend, while his anxieties 
and responsibilities have been proportionately 
great. Both, it appears, retired on equal for- 
tunes, both, it may be presumed, worked equally 
hard, and he concludes that he himself has been 
badly used by fortune. We cannot quite agree. 
We should have thought that bookselling was at 
least a much pleasanter and more agreeable kind 
of work than blacksmithing, and while the black- 
smith, no doubt, proved himself a useful member 
of the community, we think that the bookseller, 
who presumably has had an active share in ad- 
vancing the intellectual life of his district, per- 
formed an even more useful function than the 
blacksmith. We are quite ready to admit that 
bookselling has not been as profitable a vocation 
as it ought to be, but we think that booksellers 
themselves are partly to blame — at any rate for 
the extension and long continuance of the dis- 
count system. 

Mr. John Murray has sent the following letter 
to the Publishers' Weekly , on the subject of the 
Australian Market for American books : — 

1 have read, he says, your article on the 
question of Australian editions of American books, 
and I cannot but think that there has been some 
misunderstanding. The feeling which exists over 
here has arisen from no unfriendliness. I think 
the fact which is hardly appreciated is this : — YVe 
have other Colonies in various parts of the world 
besides Australia, but Australia is by far the largest, 
and the E nglish publishers have been at great 
pains and expense to develop the trade there. 
Although the sales to the other Colonies are con- 
siderable, they are, in the case of some books, not 
sufficient to warrant the risk of a Colonial edition 
bv themselves and without the Australian market. 
The American traders scarcely touch these other 
Colonies at all, and we have therefore a certain 
advantage in regard to a Colonial edition which I 
venture to think can hardly be held out by the 
American publishers. I think, however, that what 
really lies at the bottom of our complaint in this 
case is that we feel we have no opportunity of actu- 
ally laying the advantages before the author him- 
self. The Australian market is taken by the pub- 
lisher, and we have no chance of negotiating with 
those who really ought to be judges in the matter. 
In one or two cases where l have had the Australian 
market of an American book, 1 have had such 
gratifying expressions of satisfaction from the 
authors that I cannot but think the same result 
would follow if I had the same opportunity in other 
cases. I may add that when an author over here 
asks to be allowed to negotiate for an American 
edition of his or her work, independently of my 
edition, I invariably concede this right, as 1 think 
it is only fair that the author should have the last 
word in a case of this kind, which seems to me 
parallel to the case of Australian editions of 
American books. 

Messrs. C. Arthur Pearson, Ltd., have found it 
necessary to advance the price, as from March 1st, 
of the paper-covered edition of their “ Scouting 
for Boys” from is. to is. 6d. The trade terms 
will be increased pro rain. 4 he cloth edition 
remains 2s. net, as before. 

February ii, 1916 



Major Eric ti. Frost, of Oakdene, Bishop’s 
Avenue, Finchley, has died, his many friends will 
regret to hear, in France, of wounds received from 
a sniper whilst carrying crosses to place on the 
graves of some of his men who had recently fallen. 
He was an old Highgate Grammar School boy, 
only 27, a very keen soldier, and most popular 
with all ranks of his battalion (7th Middlesex). 
For four years previous to the outbreak of war 
he represented Messrs. Williams & Norgate, after 
being with Messrs. Hutchinson & Co. He is re- 
membered by his colleagues as a sincere and 
generous friend. 

The Macmillan Company, of New York, has 
recently acquired the plot on the corner of 
Fifth Avenue and Twelfth Street, adjoining the 
property at 62, Fifth Avenue, and 11, West 
Twelfth Street, purchased by them in May of last 
year. These purchases, with the land on which 
the present building of the publishing company 
stands, at 64-66, Fifth Avenue, give a plottage 
with a frontage of 154 feet on Fifth Avenue and 
150 feet on Twelfth Street, a base area of 
approximately twenty-two thousand square feet. 
It is intended that this property is to be improved 
immediately by the erection of a twelve-storey 
structure, which the Macmillan Company plans 
to make a headquarters of the wholesale book 
trade of the United States. The Macmillan Com- 
pany proposes to occupy the first four floors of 
the new building ; the remaining floors will be 
leased to concerns engaged in similar pursuits. 

The Federation of Master Printers, speaking on 
behalf of the Printing Trade throughout England, 
Scotland, Wales and Ireland, calls the attention 
of the public to: 1. The constantly increasing cost 
in the production of printing and its allied arts. 
2. The difficulties attendant on the giving of esti- 
mates in advance, owing to the uncertainty of the 
prices of materials. 3. The present shortage of 
labour and the increasing scarcity which will 
shortly arise, as the general printing trade has 
not been scheduled as a reserved occupation. It 
points out that His Majesty’s Government, the 
municipal authorities, public bodies, railway and 
other companies, and the large consumers of print 
generally throughout the United Kingdom have 
recognised the justice of conceding increases, even 
on existing contracts, and expresses the hope that 
the general public will recognise the necessity for 
considerably advanced prices. It asks customers 
to refrain as far as possible from asking for esti- 
mates in advance, and to allow longer time than 
usual for the execution of their orders. 

Book Publishing in Germany. — According to the 
New York Evening Post, Germany has suffered 
much less than might have been expected, partly' 
because women and young men have successfully 
learned to do the work of men, and partly bv the 
fact that war literature pays. The book brokers at 
Leipzig, though rather reduced in number, still do 
an active trade, and the trains which before the 
war left Leipzig every Wednesday and Saturday 
are still running. L’p to last March the soldiers 
at the front eagerly asked for war books. Since 
then the demand has changed, and war literature 
is no longer wanted. Solid, peaceful novels are in 
great demand, also the works of Goethe, Kant, 
and Jacobsen, the Scandinavian psychologist, 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., have certainly 
done the country a service in providing an English 
translation, with an excellent explanatory intro- 
duction by Mr. L. G. Redmond-Howard, of that 
work of German fiction describing “ Hindenburg’s 
March into London,” which has been, we are 
told, phenomenally successful in Germany. 
Perhaps its most significant feature is the almost 
complete absence of any mention of the English 
Fleet, the existence of which is wholly ignored. 
The whole story is much too one-sided even to 
be effective, and one or two defeats or set-backs 
might have been allowed, if only to make the 
final result a little more natural. Mr. Redmond- 
Howard is certainly right when he points out 
that “ so far from advancing the threatened in- 
vasion of England, the Kaiser has made it for 
ever impossible.” The book, we may note, is 
issued in two forms — a popular edition at one 
shilling and threepence, usually one shilling, and 
half-a-crown in cloth. The book is published on 
the suggestion of an English officer, and the pub- 
lishers are rightly careful to make it clear that 
there is no possibility of the enemy making any 
profit out of it. 

Mr. J. M. Robertson, M.P., has often proved 
himself an effective and trenchant controversialist, 
and in his new book, “ War and Civilisation: An 
Open Letter to a Swedish Professor,” just pub- 
lished by Messrs. George Allen & Unwin, Ltd., he 
has once more shown his abilities in this capacity. 
His new book is, from the point of view of the 
Allies, at any rate, a conclusive reply to an attempt 
made by Professor Steffen, of Stockholm, to justify 
the action of Germany in provoking and carrying 
on the present war, because of her imperial 
needs and the perfection of her “ Kultur. ” We 
need not, of course, follow Mr. Robertson in his 
various arguments, and it is quite enough to say 
that on the political and sociological side he writes 
with the full knowledge of a trained expert and 
with an intimate acquaintance with German 
thought and the German mind. 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., have published a 
volume of verses entitled ” Flights of Twilight,” 
by Blanche Adelaide Brock. It contains miscel- 
laneous pieces, patriotic poetry, and other verses. 
As a general rule, the author’s poetic fancy does 
not reach any very great heights, but some of her 
verses show taste and fancy, and the patriotic 
pieces possess some inspiration. 

The Temple Press has just published a very 
useful book on “ The Two-Stroke Engine,” by Dr. 
A. M. Low, which is said to be the first manual 
on the subject ever written. It is fully illustrated 
with diagrams, and will, no doubt, find widespread 
approval. Messrs. E. J. Larby, Ltd., of Pater- 
noster Row, are the wholesale agents for the trade. 

“ Simple Rhymes for Stormy Times,” by Jessie 
Pope, has just been issued by Messrs. C. A. 
Pearson, Ltd. Many of these have already 
appeared in print, and the collection makes an 
admirable shillingsworth. As a sample, we may 
quote a verse from some rhymes on “ The 
Midshipman ” : — 

“ A little chap in oilskins at the wheel 

” (It’s ages since he felt his mother’s kiss), 

“ But he never shrinks from danger, for the 
middy likes to feel 

“ That his country’s in his keeping — and it is.”

February ii, 1916 

Dr. Bridges, the Poet Laureate, has published 
through Messrs. Longmans a new Anthology in 
Verse and Prose which he has entitled “The 
Spirit of Man.’’ He has taken his extracts from 
English and French writers, mainly philosophers 
and poets. Throughout, the compiler has 
endeavoured to illustrate the view “ that man is 
a spiritual being, and the proper work of his 
mind is to interpret the world according to his 
higher nature, and to conquer the material aspects 
of the world so as to bring them into subjection 
to the spirit.” He has specially drawn upon 
Amiel, Blake, R. W. Dixon, Coleridge, Keats, 
Milton, Shakespeare, Shelley, and Wordsworth, 
and one is rather surprised to find that Cardinal 
Newman has been overlooked, though one quite 
understands that the compiler makes no preten- 
sion to having collected all the best illustrations 
available. Dr. Bridges has made one noticeable 
innovation, in that he has placed no author’s 
name under any extract, because, as he says, he 
wishes the several pieces to be read in context, 
and he thinks the names of the authors might 
perhaps distract the reader’s attention. We do 
not gather that he intends to make any special 
appeal to the wider circles of the reading public, 
but the collection he has here presented will no 
doubt have great attractions for the more thought- 
ful. He is, we may admit, perfectly right when 
he reminds his readers that in the present troubles 
“we can turn to seek comfort only in the quiet 
confidence of our souls, and we look instinctively 
to the seers and poets of mankind, whose sayings 
are the oracles and prophecies of loveliness and 
loving-kindness. ’ ’ 

Messrs. Cassell & Co. have published a shilling 
brochure on that always arresting subject, 
“ What Happens After Death? ” It is described 
as “a Symposium by Leading Writers and 
Thinkers,” and among the twenty-six contribu- 
tors we find such well-known people as Canon 
Horsley, Dr. R. F. Horton, Rev. Frank Ballard, 
Professor Sayce, Sir Hiram Maxim, Mrs. Annie 
Besant, Mr. A. C. Benson, Dr. Max Nordau, Mrs. 
Flora Annie Steele, and the Rev. Dinsdale Young. A 
short Foreword points out that “ fifty years ago 
the reply to the question ‘ After death — What?’ 
would have been much more precise than it can 
be now. For to-day there is far less tendency 
among the champions of faith to be dogmatically 
certain, and far greater tendency among scientists 
to regard the question as one worthy of their 
scientific treatment.” 

The Iris Publishing Company, of 30-31, 
Furnival Street, E.C., some of whose issues we 
have already warmly commended, has just pub- 
lished an English edition of “ Takeda Izumo — 
The Pine Tree,” a drama adapted from the 
Japanese, which is described as the most powerful 
drama ever produced by Japanese literature. A 
useful study of Japanese drama and literature, 
by M. C. Marcus, running to some eighty pages, 
is prefixed, and adds very materially to the 
interest and value of the book. It has been written 
more especially for the general reader, who will 
find it very well worth reading. The book has 
been published at the small price of one shilling, 
in order to bring it within the reach of the general 
book-buying public, and it will no doubt find 
the very favourable reception it so well deserves. 

In “Australasia Triumphant,” Mr. A. St. John 

Adcock has admirably succeeded in his endeavour 
to “ gather together a connected narrative, not 
only of the actual campaigning, but of the 
spiritual and mental experiences the Australasians 
have passed through since August, 1914, the way 
they have faced this crisis in their history, and 
the effect the war has had on their national life.” 
He gives his readers a very good idea of the main 
operations, and he has collected the individual 
impressions and opinions of many of the actual 
heroes. His book is an authoritative testimony 
to the patriotic spirit with which our Australasian 
Colonies have done their part, and to the indi- 
vidual heroism and courage which Australasian 
soldiers have so conspicuously shown. The book 
is sure to prove popular both here and in 
Australia, and Mr. Adcock may be heartily con- 
gratulated on the skill and ability with which he 
has performed his task. The book is published 
by Messrs. Simpkin, Marshall & Co. 

Messrs. Nisbet & Co. have now added to their 
popular shilling series “ Writers of the Day ” a 
careful and noteworthy appreciation of “Thomas 
Hardy,” by Mr. Harold Child. In dealing with 
the novelist’s artistic purpose Mr. Child acutely 
remarks that Hardy writes about the struggles of 
individual human wills against the power that 
rules the world, while he possesses in a marked 
degree the peculiar gift of a double vision — “ if 
he sees the littleness he also sees the greatness. 
Watching from infinity he shows human life as 
futile and trivial . . . looking out from the very 
heart of some farmer or milkmaid he shows 
human life heroically grand.” Mr. Child’s 
analysis of the novels is excellently done, and 
altogether his little book thoroughly deserves a 
front place in the very attractive series in which 
it finds a place. 

Lieut. -Commander H. Taprell Dorling, R.N., 

who is already known as a popular writer on 
naval subjects, has just published through Messrs. 
George Philip & Son, a useful littlte book on 
“ Ribbons and Medals.” It does not attempt to 
give a full or complete account of all Orders, 
Decorations and Medals, but only to provide a 
means whereby the ordinary person may recog- 
nise the ribbon of any Order or Medal he sees 
on the breast of a British soldier or sailor. 
For this purpose actual pieces of the different 
ribbons have been reproduced. This last is the 
important feature of the book, which at the 
present time supplies an obvious need and will, 
no doubt, prove very popular. The coloured 
plates illustrate some hundred and twenty-five 
different ribbons, and the descriptions of each are 
clear, accurate, and helpful. 

Messrs. T. & T. Clark have published an 
attractive sixpenny booklet entitled “ The Chap- 
lain and the War,” by the Rev. J. Esslemont 
Adams, B.D., one of the Chaplains to the Forces. 
He gives a brief but vivid account of the work 
and activities of the Army Chaplain at the Front, 
and he points out that a great door of service for 
soldiers and sailors when they have finished their 
present work is opening, and the Church ought to 
take full advantage of this opportunity. The 
brochure concludes with a roll of Chaplains of the 
United Free Church now serving in the Navy and 
in the Army. 

February ii, 1916 



Messrs. Cornish Brothers, Ltd., of Birming- 
ham, have published a little book which is sure 
to interest all Birmingham readers and also many 
outside the limits of the immediate district. 
“ Made in Birmingham” is the title of a book 
in verse and prose, chosen from the writings of 
those who live or have lived in Birmingham. The 
compiler, Mrs. Hugh Walker, has already given 
some proof of her editorial skill in her “ Book 
of Victorian Poetry and Prose,” and she has 
brought equal ability and success to her present 
task. In her Introduction, she apologises some- 
what for the modern industrialism of which the 
City of Birmingham is essentially a product, but 
she urges on the other side that the city has always 
been accessible to ideas. Ideas, she goes on to 
say, require expression, and she tells us that the 
purpose of her little book is to “ illustrate as well 
as the limits allow the manner in which some 
Birmingham men and women of the present and 
the past have done so.” Michael Johnson, of Lich- 
field, father of Dr. Johnson, came over once a 
week to sell his books ; while John Baskerville, the 
printer, and William Hutton, the bookseller, are 
both citizens of whom the city may well be proud. 
The greatest name of literary Birmingham is 
probably Cardinal Newman, and seven extracts 
from his works are here included, and the same 
number allotted to Sir Oliver Lodge. Six extracts 
are taken from Sir Edward Burne-Jones ; but 
nearly all the others, including Archbishop 
Benson, John Bright, Joseph Chamberlain, Bishop 
Gore, Bishop Lightfoot, James Martineau, J. H. 
Shorthouse, Bishop Westcott, are represented by 
only one or two. The book is neatly printed, and 
all concerned — readers, publishers, and editor — 
may be warmly congratulated on its success. 
Messrs. Cornish have also published " God and 
the Allies: A View of the Grande Entente,” by 
Rosslyn Bruce, D.D., Vicar of St. Augustine’s, 
Edgbaston, which suggests that it is “ a prac- 
tical link in the chain of Divine purpose, working 
through the human means of friendly nations to 
the establishment of an international under- 
standing throughout the whole of civilised 

Messrs. Methuen & Co. have just published 

Let Be,” by Mrs. Lethbridge, author of 
“ Middle Life,”; “ Hilaire Belloc: the Man 
and his Work,” by C. C. Mandell and 
Edward Shanks, with a characteristic Intro- 
duction by Mr. G. K. Chesterton ; “ Three 

Pretty Men,” a new novel, by Mr. Gilbert 
Cannan ; the three men are three brothers, James, 
Thomas, and John Lawrie, Scotsmen, who try to 
establish themselves in Lancashire in the first half 
of the last century. 

Messrs. Simpkin, Marshall & Co. have published 
“ The Year of Chivalry,” by Edmund Candler, 
who is at present acting as “ Eye-Witness ” in 
Mesopotamia. It embodies his experiences last 
year ‘‘somewhere in France.” The same pub- 
lishers are about to issue “ Many Thanks — Ben 
Hassett,” an Australian detective story, dealing 
with one Ben Hassett, a notorious thief in 
Australia. The author is Mr. H. de Hamel, whose 

War Mates ” has proved very successful. He 
has been serving in the trenches with the London 
Scottish, and has only recently returned from the 

Messrs. Constable & Co. in “ Aircraft in War- 
fare : The Dawn of the Fourth Arm,” by F. W, 
Lanchester, M.I.C.E., M.I.A.E., Member of the 
Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, have given 
us a very opportune and helpful volume. The 
increasing importance of aircraft in war is now 
everywhere recognised, and Mr. Lanchester has 
done a real service in collecting into one con- 
venient volume the very notable articles on the 
subject which he contributed to Engineering 
in 1914. We cannot, of course, pretend to 

criticise the book in any detail, but we may at 
once say that its value and importance for all 
concerned in the subject are at once manifest. 
This is further proved by the fact that Major- 
General Sir David Henderson, the Director- 
General of Military Aeronautics, has definitely 
given the work his approval and has contributed 
an Introductory Preface, in which he warmly com- 
mends it to the interested reader. Sir David 
Henderson rightly lays special emphasis on the 
fact that it is only by this solution of fundamental 
problems of science that improvement in the power 
of flight can be gained, and in this connection he! 
draws special attention to the “ N-square law,”’ 
which Mr. Lanchester has now for the first time! 
stated in figures and logically proved. 

The Writers’ and Artists’ Year Book, 1916, has 
been issued as usual by Messrs. A. and C. Black. 
The book, it should be remembered, has been com- 
piled with the special view of meeting the needs; 
of the freelance contributor, and it does not pur-' 
port to be a general Press directory. All freelance 
writers will find the information and advice given 1 
of very great use, and an obiter dictum in the’ 
preface that in the matter of terms American 
editors are as a rule more businesslike than British’ 
editors is, perhaps, worth noting. 

“ Sport, Travel and Adventure,” edited by 1 
Mr. A. G. Lewis and published by Mr. T. 
Fisher Unwin, provides an exceptionally attractive 
collection of tales of exciting adventure, of big- 
game hunting of famous travellers. The stories’ 
have been selected after the editor’s reading of 
some one hundred and fifty separate books, and of 
these more than one-third appear in Mr. Fisher 
Unwin’s catalogue. If we had space, we should 
like to make quotations, butj on the whole, it is 
as well we are prevented, for if we began, we 
should hardly know where to leave off, and in any 
case mere extracts or selections are always unsatis- 

Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston <& Co. have 
now issued a second course of the “ Lessons in 
Russian,” by Mr. B. Karrachy Smith. It deals 
almost exclusively with the regular verb, its con- 
jugations and aspects, and the author endeavours 
to familiarise the beginner with the elements of 
the general structure of the language, its conver- 
sational forms and idioms. The work has been 
very carefully arranged, and will be very helpful 
to all students of the Russian language. 

The Annual Volume of “ Who’s Who” makes 
its customary appearance. It is too well known 
to need any detailed review, and it is enough to 
say that it is as bulky, as complete, and as full 
of information as ever. The “ Who’s Who Year 
Book,” which is now published separately, is a 
very useful supplementary volume, containing 
various items of information for which room 
cannot readily be found in the parent volume.

February ix, 1916 

Messrs. Cassell’s Spring List, 1916, which has 
just been issued, contains particulars of several im- 
portant and interesting- books. Mr. H. G. Wells 
has a book entitled, “ What is Coming: A Fore- 
cast of Things After the War ” ; Stephen Graham 
is to give us a new travel book, “ Through Russian 
Central Asia Mr. James Marchant writes 
“ Letters and Reminiscences of Alfred Russel 
Wallace”; Sir George Forrest, C. I. E., ” The Life 
of Lord Clive ” ; and Princess Catherine Radziwill 
describes “ The Austrian Court from Within.” 
Miss Jessie Adelaide Middleton has collected 
“ The White Ghost Book,” and Mr. Walter Wood 
retells ‘‘Survivors’ Tales of Famous Crimes. ” There 
are many important new novels, including “ These 
Lynnekers,” by J. D. Beresford ; ‘‘ Julius Le 

V’allon,” by Algernon Blackwood; ■“ Unrest,” by 
Warwick Deeping; “ Love’s Highway,” by Justus 
Miles Forman, who perished in the sinking of the 
Lusitania; ‘‘The Green Orchard,” by Andrew 
Soutar ; “ Number Seventeen,” by Louis Tracy; 
‘‘The Island of Surprise,” by Cyrus Townsend 
Brady; ‘‘Mysteries of the Riviera,” by E. P. 
Oppenheim. There are many other books of in- 
terest, and the List is illustrated by several 
portraits of the best-known writers. 

Messrs. Jarrold & Sons will shortly publish 

Ravings of a Renegade,” an. English translation 
by Dr. C. H. Clarke, of Houston Stewart Chamber- 
lain’s notorious “ War Essays.” The translator 
prefixes an Introduction, and Mr. Lewis Melville 
contributes a Preface. The same publishers will 
issue a little book on “ Map Reading,” by Mr. T. 
Drew, recently an Army schoolmaster, but now 
engaged on active service, and a volume of original 
short stories entitled ‘‘ Caravan Days,” by Mr. 
George Goodchild, Editor of “ The Blinded 
Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Gift Book,” with illustra- 
tions by Mr. Claud Shepperson, the well-known 

Messrs Macmillan & Co.’s List of forthcoming 
books includes a new and final edition of J. R. 
Green’s well-known “ Short History of the English 
People,” with an epilogue by Mrs. J. R. Green 
continuing the History down to the present day; 
“ Introduction to the Study of International Rela- 
tions,” Articles by various authors, edited by 
Arthur Greenwood, B.Sc. ; ‘‘Aircraft in War and 
Peace,” by William A. Robson; “ Leaves from a 
Field Note Book,” by J. H. Morgan, late Home 
Office Commissioner with the British Expedi- 
tionary Force; ‘‘Prayer: A Symposium,” edited 
by the Rev. Canon B. H. Streeter and the Author 
of “ Pro Christo et Ecclesia ” ; Shilling Editions 
of H. G. Wells’ Novels, ‘‘Marriage,” ‘‘‘The 
Passionate Friends,” ‘‘Kipps: The Story of a 
Simple Soul. ” 

Rifleman Patrick MacGill, whose previous book, 
‘‘ Children of the Dead End,” attracted special 
attention, has just published, through Messrs. 
Herbert Jenkins, Ltd., “ The Red Horizon,” an 
unusually vivid word picture of the Avar. Lord 
Esher contributes an appreciative foreword. 

Mr. John Lane has published an Edition de Luxe 
of ‘‘ A Book of Belgium’s Gratitude,” limited to 
200 copies, at one guinea net, and a second 
ordinary edition of the book ; also “ The Theatre of 
To-Day,” by Hiram Kelly Moderwell ; a volume 
of poems entitled “ Open Water,” by Arthur 
Stranger, a well-known American poet. 

Mr. Arthur Machen, whose previous, story of 
“ The Bowmen ” Avas apparently the starting 
point of the strange tales of the “ Angels at 
Mons,” has now published, through the Faith 
Press, 22, Buckingham Street, Strand, some other 
tales equally uncanny and mysterious. On a 
certain Saturday in July, seemingly last year, 
strange happenings took place at Llantrissant, a 
Avell-knoAvn small Welsh seaside resort — a won- 
derful reconciliation between tAvo deadly enemies, 
the transformation of a girl in the last stages of 
consumption into a perfectly healthy and lively 
person, mysterious incense in the old church, 
Avhose ancient rector Avas a pronounced anti- 
ritualist ; a wonderful red light seen on the sea, 
and othetr marvels. We are not quite clear whether 
Mr. Machen tells his tales as actual facts or as 
fiction, but in either case they are certainly very 
marvellous, and give evidence of a A-ery lively 
imagination or of an exceptional insight into the 
occult or the unknown. 

“ Nelson’s History of the War,” by Mr. John 

Buchan, is making excellent progress, and in 
vol. ix. Mr. Buchan describes in his OAvn charac- 
teristic fashion the Italian War, the Campaign in 
Gallipoli, and the Russian Retreat from the 
WarsaAv Salient. This chapter on the operations 
at Gallipoli makes very interesting if rather 
melancholy reading, and in dealing Avith the atti- 
tude of America tOA\ards Germany Mr. Buchan 
has very successfully given his readers the 
American standpoint. 

Mr. T‘. Fisher Unwin has just published 
“ Exile,” a neAv and dramatic novel by Dolf 
Wyllarde ; “ The Stranger’s Wedding : A Comedy 
of the Romantic,” a new novel by that successful 
Avriter, Mr. W. L. George ; the second volume, 
dealing Avith Tactics, Field Fortifications, Mili- 
tary Reconnaissance, Bridging, Mining, Demoli- 
tions, Gunnery, &c., of “ A War Manual,” by 
Lieut. -Colonel C. C. Anderson; ‘‘In a French 
Hospital: Notes of a Nurse,” by Mile. Fydoux- 
Demian, which Avill be found a very notable book. 

Mr. Heinemann is adding to his series of 
“ Soldiers’ Tales of the Great War,” of which 
the first volume, ‘‘ With My Regiment from the 
Aisne to La Bassee,” has proved very successful, 
a second, entitled “ The Epic of Dixmude,” 
telling hoAV 6,000 sailors, the French Fusilier 
Marines, and 5,000 Belgians held up 30,000 
Germans for a Avhole month and barred the Avay 
to Dunkirk. He has also published the little War 
Sketch, “ Du Theatre au Camp d’Honneur,” in 
Avhich Madame Sarah Bernhardt appeared so suc- 
cessfully at the London Coliseum. 

Messrs. J. BartholomeAv & Co. have just pub- 
lished a War Map of Central and South Africa 
which shoAvs both the operations of General Botha 
in his conquest of German South-West Africa, 
and also the area Avhere General J. C. Smuts 
will probably carry on his campaign against 
German East Africa. The map has been carefully 
corrected up to date. 

Messrs. Cassell & Co. announce cheap popular 
editions of many of their recent books. We may 
specially note “ A History of the Modern World,” 
by Oscar BroAvning, M.A. ; “ The Life of Lord 
Roberts, V.C.,” bv Sir George Forrest; ‘‘The 
Other Side of the Lantern,” bv Sir Frederick 
T reves. 

February ii, 1916 



Bulgaria and Her Position in the present War 
is a matter of important interest to all the Allies, 
and special attention may therefore be drawn to 
an important book on the subject just issued by 
Messrs. Armand Colin, the well-known Paris pub- 
lishers. It is entitled “ La Bulgarie : Ses Ambitions, 
Sa Trahison, par ‘ Balcanicus,’ ” and it has 
been translated into French from the Serbian 
original. The pseudonym “ Balcanicus ” covers 
the personality of a well-known Serbian politician. 
The facts and arguments he here gives us are of 
the highest significance and importance, and very 
materially help towards a correct understanding 
of some of the mysteries of the Bulgarian problem 
which the Allies have to solve. 

The Boom in Light Motor Cars is now generally 
recognised, and Messrs. C. A. Pearson have pro- 
vided a very useful handbook for the many 
persons interested. “The Modern Light Car: 
How to Drive, Maintain, and Repair It,” by the 
author of “ The Modern Motor Cycle,’’ supplies 
just the information and advice that the light-car 
owner needs. The various points which arise are 
clearly and efficiently dealt with, and the many 
hints and suggestions on almost every page are 
of the highest practical value and usefulness. The 
handbook, which is published at one shilling, is 
fully illustrated, and is sure to make a very effec- 
tive appeal to the wide circle of readers for whom 
it has been specially prepared. 

Messrs. De La Rue & Co. are publishing a new 
and thoroughly up-to-date book on Auction 
Bridge, by “ Bascule,” the well-known Cards 
Editor of the Sporting and Dramatic News. It 
Is entitled “ Advanced Auction Bridge (Royal 
Spades),” and an important feature is the large 
collection of illustrative hands represented pictori- 

Messrs. C. A. Pearson, Ltd., have published a 
useful little handbook entitled “ Profitable Goat 
Keeping,” for which the experts on the staff of 
the Smallholder are responsible. They em- 
phasise the view that the goat is the “ Poor Man’s 
Cow,’’ and should be very much more encouraged 
than is the case at present. 

Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston & Co. have 
just added two very attractive volumes to their 
popular 1 hree and Sixpenny Series of Prize and 
Reward Books for Boys. “ Saturday Island,” by 
Robert Overton, is accurately described as “ Fun, 
Friendship and Adventure at an Elementary 
Council School,” and all those who have read Mr. 
Overton s previous books know that any book 
from his pen needs no recommendation. The 
various scenes of school life are very vividly de- 
scribed, and Tommy Podwick, who may, we sup- 
pose, be described as the hero, has been very 
successfully and attractively drawn. The other 
book by that past master in writing romances for 
boys, Mr. Harry Collingwood, gives a sufficiency 
of thrilling adventures to satisfy anv boy reader, 
at the end of which Dick Cavendish, fifth officer 
■of the good ship Everest finds himself married 
to Myrra, the beautiful young Queen of the 
Lilians, and firmly fixed in the position of King 
of the country, with the power of working jewel 
mines enough to make him and his friends rich 
beyond the dreams of avarice. Both books are j 
well illustrated and are quite sure to prove very j 

Burke’s Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage 

(1916) once more makes its annual appearance, 
and the editor naturally notes in his preface the 
enormous increase of his work which a year of 
the war entails. As publication this year is 
rather later than usual, the deaths of Lord 
Armistead, Lord Ellenborough, the Marquess of 
Abergavenny, the Earl of Glasgow, Viscount 
Alverstone, Earl De La Warr, the Earl of Roden, 
and the Earl of Cranbrook, all of whom died after 
the 1st of December, are duly noted in their 
{.roper places. The volume contains all the usual 
information, and the high reputation it has so 
long enjoyed as an authoritative work of reference 
is fully maintained. 

Messrs. Sampson Low, Marston & Co. will pub- 
lish shortly an exciting volume of actual experi- 
ences at the front entitled “ With French: Mons 
to Vpres, ” by Frederic Coleman, F.R.G.S. He 
had several remarkable adventures and experi- 
ences. He was himself once wounded, and his car 

was hit on six different occasions. He did excel- 
lent work as a motor-car driver at Headquarters, 
and his story has an actuality and vividness of its 
own. The book will be fully illustrated from 
photographs, and gives a most realistic impres- 
sion of the many scenes and incidents it describes. 

“ The Way of the Cross,” just issued by 
Messrs. Constable & Co., is, we are told by Mr. 
Stephen Graham, who contributes a short Intro- 
duction, probably the first piece of Russian war 
literature translated into English. It is written 
by Doroshevitch, a well-known Russian jour- 
nalist, who contributed it to the “ Russkoe 
Slovo ” last October. He went from Moscow to 
meet the oncoming flood of refugees, and he came 
back with the extraordinary experiences he has 
here so realistically described. The story he has 
to tell of the sad scenes and sufferings of the 
refugees is terribly vivid and impressive, and 
gives the reader some idea of the troubles and 
deprivations which Russia is enduring. The 
author’s style is forcible and original, and the 
book is one which should find a wide circulation 
among all who are interested in the part which 
Russia is taking in the war. 

Messrs. Methuen & Co. have added to their 
popular Shilling Series “ The Survival of Man,” 
by Sir Oliver Lodge; “ The Lodger,” Mrs. Belloc 
Lowndes’ very successful novel, and “ The Sea 
Captain,” by Mr. II. C. Bailey, a notable romance 
of Elizabethan times. They have also published 
a popular two-shilling edition of “ Lochinvar,” 
one of Mr. S. R. Crockett’s most successful

Under Cover. 

D EAR BLUESTOCKING, — We are “ going 

through it ” with a vengeance ! It never rains but 
it pours, and I imagine that Mark Tapley himself, 
if he happened at the present time to be engaged in the 
book trade, would find it a trifle harder than usual to 
maintain at full pitch that cheery serenity with which 
he was endowed by his creator. While publishers 
and booksellers were still ruefully confronting the 
difficulties caused by shortage of labour and the 
largely increased expense of binding and book produc- 
tion generally, down came another heavy blow in the 
form of the proposed Board of Trade restriction upon 
the importation of paper-making material. In a 
recent issue of the Times Literary Supplement I came 
upon the encouraging assertion that one result of the 
war has been to make people positively “ crave for 
books.” Let us sincerely hope that this is so indeed; 
but even if it is, one cannot blind oneself to the prac- 
tical consideration that, so far as ?iew books are con- 
cerned, it is not much use for anyone to crave for such 
things unless they can be produced at prices which 
war-tightened pockets are able to afford on the one 
hand, and which will assure to their producers a 
reasonable margin of profit on the other. 

That the effect of the Goyernment restriction will 
be to render paper vastly dearer and more difficult to 
obtain is a matter of mathematical certainty ; and this, 
added to the other factors which make for increased 
cost of production, must of necessity compel a drastic 
reduction of the number of books that can be placed 
on the market with an.y hope of profit. Many of the 
publishers, it is understood, have good stocks of paper 
in hand; but even so, common prudence will suggest 
to them the wisdom of husbanding their resources in 
the present emergency, and refraining from the issue 
of any works which seem of doubtful market value. 
Fewer new books appear, therefore, to be an inevit- 
able consequence of the latest war-shock which the 
trade has sustained. 

But there js another and a very large class of books, 
other than those which are in the strictest sense 
‘‘ new,” that must be gravely affected by the condi- 
tions with which the publishers are now faced. 1 
allude, of course, to the cheap reprints which have 
attained such a wide popularity, and have been poured 
forth in such lavish profusion in the last few years. 
To the producers of these, the coming shortage of 
paper may well prove the traditional “ last straw,” 
and there are already those who predict that the 
much-appreciated “ sevenpennys,” and other inexpen- 
sive re-issues of favourite works, are destined for the 
time being to disappear altogether. At the best, it 
seems certain that they will have to be greatly reduced 
in number and considerably increased in price; and it 
is notable that, even before the paper difficulty has 
had time to materialise, the price per volume of such 
a popular issue as “ Everyman’s Library ” has begun 
to show an upward trend. From every point of view, 
it will be a thousand pities if the cheap reprints of 
good literature — -which, by the way, have been such 
a Godsend to the men in the trenches and on the 
battleships, as well as to countless readers at home — 
have perforce to be added to the list of our war 
sacrifices. But we cannot expect them to be produced 
at a heavy loss; and it appears more than likely that 
circumstances may presently make it impossible to 
produce them at all. 

Naturally, things being as they are, the question of 
the selling price of new novels in the immediate future 
is being anxiously discussed; and in view of the 
difficulty of the subject and the obscurity of the out- 
look, it is not surprising that widely divergent views 
are being expressed. While on the one side it is 
urgently recommended that the “ six-shilling ” novel 
should be retained and its present selling price raised 
to the purchasing public, there is a clamorous demand 
in other quarters for the throwing over of the ‘‘six- 

shilling ” form, and for a bold attempt to popularise 
novel-buying by following the example of our French 
friends, and issuing new works of fiction, in cheaply 
produced volumes, at a much lower price. For the 
champions of each of these rival courses there is 
obviously a lion in the path. Those who advocate the 
former may well ask themselves whether, in these 
hard times, any considerable section of the public 
would be prepared to buy new novels at five shillings 
apiece ; while those who recommend the latter have 
now to consider the paper difficulty in its bearing upon 
the possibility of producing the largely increased 
number of copies of every new work of fiction w'hich 
the lowered price, to be successful, would entail and 

Clearly, the problem is one that bristles with diffi- 
culties ; and the worst of it is that these rival recom- 
mendations, and any others that may be put forward, 
can only be judged by the test of practical experience. 
When I say that is “ the worst of it,” I mean that 
experiments involving the possibility of serious loss, 
which might be adventurously undertaken by enter- 
prising publishers at ordinary times, seem forbiddingly 
formidable propositions at a moment when everyone is 
afraid of spending money, and many are wondering 
how much longer they will have any to spend. But 
the hard fact remains that it is necessary to meet — or 
attempt to meet- — abnormal conditions by abnormal 
methods, and nothing but the logic of ascertained 
facts can prove what is best to be done. Merely to 
say that the public won’t buy dearer books and that 
the publishers can’t supply cheaper ones, and to 
“ leave it at that,” will certainly not help us to 
weather the storm. 

Authors in general, and novelists in particular, are 
suffering pretty severely from the effects of the war; 
and I was reminded quite recently that our writers of 
fiction, especially those who appeal to a big popular 
constituency, have other troubles to contend with just 
now, besides those which immediately .affect their 
banking accounts. One of them, to whom I was 
talking a few days ago, told me almost with tears in 
his eyes that he was at his wits’ end to know what 
to do about his heroes. “ You see,” he said plain- 
tively, “ all my stories are of the up-to-date kind as 
regards period. Well, obviously I can’t put a young 
man into one of them unless he is in khaki. You 
can't make a hero of a shirker or an invalid. But if 
your hero is ‘ doing his bit,’ as of course he should 
be, how can you make any use of him except in a 
war-story? And my public don’t want war-stories, and 
won’t have them at any price. So wh’ere am I? ” 
It was, I confess, a poser, and I could only counsel 
him to try changing his period for a bit — not very 
helpful advice, perhaps, to a writer whose “ job ” has 
always been to provide a certain class of story for a 
particular class of readers. How little we realise the 
ins-and-outs of other people’s troubles and difficulties 
— especially in war-time ! 

One cannot help hoping that the closing of public 
libraries for the duration of the war will not become 
general. This course has already been adopted, for 
economy’s sake, in certain instances; but it will be 
regrettable if the example is followed in any quarter 
except under stress of real necessity. Even if the 
newspaper rooms have to be closed — and it cannot be 
denied that in normal times they have been the too 
popular resorts of “ loafers ” — it is to be hoped that 
the reference and lending libraries may, wherever 
possible, be kept in being. If a shortage of male 
assistants is anywhere the trouble, there are surely 
plenty of competent women who could take up the 
duties and discharge them quite satisfactorily. 

Mr. George “ Bernhard! ” Shaw, I observe, is about 
to publish some kind of screed in which he propounds 
to a country which has half forgotten him the por- 
tentous question, “ Why not give Christianity a 
Trial?” Well, well — we are ahvays ready to listen 
to experts ! Jacob Omnium.

Messrs. T. Nelson & Sons have added to their 
Sevenpenny Copyright Novels, “ Second String-,” 
by Anthony Hope, and “ Wee MacGreegor,” that 
wonderfully humorous study of a small boy of 
Glasgow, by J. J. Bell ; to their Shilling Series, 
‘‘The Cabin,” by Stewart E. White, a breezy 
book of open-air life in the backwoods ; to their 
Collection Nelson of French Classics, “ La Main 
de Sainte Modestine,” par Jeanne Schultz; ‘‘ L^n 
Nid dans les Ruines,” par Leon de Tondeau ; 
“ Chatterton, Le Marechal d’Ancre,” “ Quitte 
pour la peur,” “ Shylock,” par Alfred de Vigny. 

Wisden’s Cricketers’ Almanack makes its fifty- 
third annual appearance in spite of the War, 
though its dimensions are, naturally, very much 
smaller than usual. A personal sketch of the late 
Dr. W. G. Grace, by Lord Hawke, together with 
full statistics of his career, will be of permanent 
value. The obituary is, of course, exceptionally 
long, and bears eloquent testimony to the part 
which our cricketers are taking in the active 
defence of the country. 

Messrs. Sidgwick & Jackson have published the 
third volume of “ Pelle the Conqueror,” by Martin 
Andersen Nexo, the famous Danish novelist. This 
volume describes the “ Great Struggle,” and 
the backbone of this part of the story is the pro- 
paganda of the Labour programme among the 
Danish working men, which Pelle is able to carry 
on. The author describes with quite wonderful 
force and effect the actual daily life and fortune 
of the working men and women among whom he 
moves. The atmosphere and the surroundings are 
handled with remarkable realism and photographic 
accuracy. The account of the great lockout, of 
the effective reply of the workmen, and their final 
victory, are unusually well done, and gives the 
reader an actual and living insight into the heart 
of these conflicts. The portrait of Ellen, Pelle’s 
wife, is in many ways quite a masterpiece, and 
the whole book must at once take its place as one 
of the most powerful of recent novels. 

Mr. A. L. Humphreys sends us a very interest- 
ing brochure in which Mr. Edward R. P. Moon 
gives a bright and lively account of his experiences 
as Acting Commandant at the Belgian Field 
Hospital behind the fighting line. What Mr. 
Moon has to tell us is always well worth reading, 
and Lord Sydenham, the Chairman of the Com- 
mittee, contributes an appreciative Introduction. 
He points out that the expenses are over ^250 a 
week, and he makes a strong appeal for further 

Silent Songs,” a book of verses which Messrs. 
Gay & Hancock have lately published, is a second 
venture in poetry by Miss Sybil Grantham, and 
it may, we hope, be inferred that her previous 
volume, ‘‘Through Tears to Triumph,” has met 
with success, and encourages her in a new attempt. 
Many of the pieces are pleasing and attractive ; 
they show a quaint imagination and some distinct 
poetic fancy. Their general quality may be fairly 
gauged by the following half-dozen lines from the 
first poem on “ Inspiration ” : — 

“ As I sit in mv dear old chair, 

Behold I cannot tell from where 
The Visions come, but silently 
The figures pass and I can see 
The soul of each clearly revealed, 

For unto me no thought is sealed.”

February ii, 1916 



To the Editor of The Bookseller. 

Dear Sir, — The letter from Messrs. J. Baker & Son 
in your columns for January would indeed voice the 
feelings of the whole retail trade, but in my opinion 
it is not of any use for them or any of us to blame 
the publisher for our penurious condition to-day. 
No, Sir, the remedy lies first with ourselves — let us 
look into ourselves — the publisher will naturally look 
after his own interests first, otherwise he will soon 
cease to be a publisher, for “ ignored circumstance ” 
will very soon attend to him, just the same as to the 
retailer for the past few years, and put him out 
of business. At the same time we retailers are quite 
right in asking for all the help and support which 
the publisher can and will give us. It is necessary 
for the publisher to revise prices — that is granted, 
but may I appeal in the strongest terms for all 
publishers to consider the question in the broadest 
possible manner? I would only ask them to benefit 
themselves, and the retailer at the same time, in a 
way as to which there can be no difference of opinion, 
no argument, and no misconstruction — to make all 
hooks net : the reward book, the educational book, 
the reference book, and the annual alike. 

There would seem to be some occult reason why 
this alteration is so slow in being brought about. 
Are a few being considered in opposition to the whole? 
The suggested change would put new life into the 
bookselling business, and lift it on to its proper and 
rightful level as one of the leading trades of the 
world. It would also result entirely and wholly for 
good — to the author, the publisher, and the book- 
seller. Why in the name of commonsense do we sell 
a is. book for qd., and why are we now hesitating to 
make this sensible and much-needed change? Are we 
being governed by Medes and Persians, whose laws 
cannot be altered ? I do not hesitate to say that 
unless the retail trade uses circumstance, and does not 
allow circumstance to use it, failure, depletion, 
and atrophy will certainly and inevitably be our 
portion in the near future. If we continue weak 
enough to let this opportunity slip by, and do not 
now use our good sense and sound judgment to 
organise our affairs properly while the chance is being 
held out to us, none can help us. Mow much trouble, 
loss, annoyance, ill-temper, want, and destitution, 
besides dissatisfied customers, the complete establish- 
ment of the net system would avoid. What a saving 
of time, too, with the serving of books over the 
counter and the invoicing of books by juniors and 
apprentices would accrue if only the net system could 
be adopted. 

Let booksellers wake up, remove the scales from 
Iheir eyes! Let them see to it that the net system 
is given a chance and is firmly established. Dis- 
count is our bane; it is becoming a disease, and like 
a disease it is spreading. Let us get it uprooted I 
hope for ever. Yours truly, 

S. T. Cheshire. 

Vicar Street, Kidderminster, 

January 20, 1916. 

P.S. — Since sending this letter (o a few friends in 
the trade, I have received communications from many 
of them; and it is both surprising and disheartening 
to meet with so much apathy amongst booksellers and 
publishers in this most serious crisis. Can none 
realise the importance of the situation, and what its 
rightful solution means to us all in the future? 1 
feel justified in staling in all seriousness that, unless 
the net system be adopted, and the discounting of 
books to the public be discontinued, as it should be 
straight away, publishers and booksellers alike will 
be forced ere long, not only to abolish the ridiculous 

practice of discounting books, but to formulate and 
adopt a plus- ing system. 

Retail booksellers should in their own interests 
demand the net system from all publishers, and not 
be satisfied with any half-and-half measures. Let us 
make a good job of this, now, at the start. Why not 
give our trade the much-needed stimulus, lift the 
bookselling business out of the gutter into which it 
has slowly sunk, and avoid all dissatisfaction and 
indecision which will certainly follow any other 
settlement ? 

To the Editor of The Bookseller. 

Sir, — We quite agree with Messrs. Baker that the 
retail booksellers ought not to be expected to bear 
the extra burden now placed on the trade, and 
although we already [give a larger discount than 
probably any other firm, we do not propose to reduce 

Surely the remedy for the greatly increased cost of 
production should be borne by the public in the case 
of books, as it is in every other commodity. 

We are slightly increasing our publishing prices 
for new books, making a 2s. book 2s. 6d., and so on r 
and at present this has not led to the smallest com- 
plaint or difficulty. 

We are, faithfully yours, 

Skeei ington & Son.

To the Editor of The Bookseller. 

Dear Sir, — With regard to the increased costs of 
materials and work in our profession, I feel 1 should 
like to tell you that my firm has decided to meet 
these increases by what we consider the simplest and 
fairest means all round, viz., to make all the books 
from is. and upwards net to the public which have 
hitherto been issued at a non-net published price. In 
several instances where a 3s. 6d. book has had a long 
run we are making such 2s. 6d. net. We are making 
no changes in onr terms to the trade, reckoning that 
the differences will equalise themselves by the raising 
of the prices generally to the net system. 

New price lists and catalogues are now in the 
press, and directly they are received I shall be 
announcing the fact in your advertising columns. 

Faithfully yours,

Notices of Books. 

Faith Tresilion. By Eden Phillpotts. (Ward, 
Lock & Co.) — The central incident in Mr. Phillpotts’ 
new novel is, we should think, original; at any rate, 
it is sufficiently remarkable. For Faith Tresilion is 
the daughter of an avowed smuggler who has lost his 
life in pursuit of his calling, and she has what we 
may, under the circumstances almost call the 
audacity, to fall in love with Robert Pawlet, the new 
preventive officer, whose main business is to break 
up the gang of smugglers of which her father was 
the chief and her brother his capable successor. To 
work out satisfactorily such a situation is no easy 
matter, but Mr. Phillpotts has achieved a remarkable 
success. The heroine and the hero are very cleverly 
drawn, and the skilful way in which Faith outwits 
her lover and saves her brother and his valuable cargo 
of smuggled goods is admirably conceived and 
described. There are, of course, other subordinate 
but important scenes and incidents which keep the 
reader’s interest and attention thoroughly aroused 
from start to finish. The villains of the tale, Elijah 
Newte, whose love for Faith, and Lieutenant 
Warner Baldwin, whose cowardice and hatred of his 
cousin, make them thorough and treacherous 
scoundrels, are very forcefully drawn, and the reader 
is only too glad when at the end they receive due 
reward for their treachery. Mrs. Tresilion, Faith’s 
strong-minded mother; Mr. Baldwin, the Rector; 
Tom Otter, his factotum ; and Mr. Sidebottom, the 
poetical publican — all play their proper part, and the 
scene at Hordell's Hall at midnight, when Paul 
Deschamps is enabled to escape under the very nose 
of his enemies, is one of the best in the whole story. 
The general surroundings of the tale are excellently 
handled, and though Mr. Phillpotts has already given 
his readers many stories of exceptionally high quality 
we are inclined to think that this is the best and 
most interesting of them all. 

The Golden Slipper and Other Problems for Violet 
Strange. By Anna Katharine Green. (G. P. 
Putnam’s Sons.) — The authoress of that very remark- 
able detective story “ The Leavenworth Case ” has 
followed it up with something like a score of other 
detective tales, most of which have proved Very suc- 
cessful, so we are not at all surprised to learn that 
this her latest venture has already reached a second im- 
pression. It consists of nine separate and independent 
tales of mystery, each with its own obscure and 
apparently hidden secret. Each is eventually solved 
by Miss Violet Stranjre, who is in ordinary life a 
wealthy young lady, living in the full rush of New 
York society. It certainly would seem that she had 
no reason to need money, though it eventually turns 
out that she does want to make a considerable amount, 
not for herself but for a sister who had married against 
her father’s wish and had been disinherited. We need 
not describe in detail the various problems which Violet 
Strange had to solve, nor need we disclose the parti- 
cular wav in which the solutions were found. It 
must suffice to say that she is certainly endowed 
to an exceptional degree with what we may call the 
detective faculty— the power of seizing at once upon 
the essential or cardinal factor and of drawing from 
it the desired conclusion. In some of the cases her 
insinht and intuition are something wonderful, and 
everv story is told with the pleasant ease and the 
seominHy obvious simplicity which are the highest 
illustration of the proverb that true art is always the 
concealment of art. When all the tales are of unusual 
excellence it would hardly be fair or, indeed, possible 
to select any one for special commendation. The 
reader, however, who reads one will be certain to read 
thd next, and will not be content till the whole volume 
is ^finished. 

The Honey Pot : A Story of the Stage. By the 
Countess Barcynska. (Hurst & Blackett, Ltd.) — “ The 
stage is a honey pot and we girls are the honey in it 
and the men are the flies buzzing round. They won’t 
leave us alone. They make it almost impossible for 
us to live a decent life. And if it’s decent it isn’t 
beautiful.” This remark of Maggy, the chorus girl 
of the Diadem Theatre, one of the heroines — perhaps 
we might say the heroine — of the story may be taken 
as its text, almost as its description. Maggy Dela- 
mere, who has been brought up in the theatre, meets 
at a voice trial Alexandra Hersey, the orphaned 
daughter of an Indian officer, who has only her pension 
of ^,40 a year to live on, and like many others hopes 
to make a living on the stage. De Preyne, the mana- 
ger of the theatre, engages them both, introduces 
Maggy to a man who is attracted by her, and finding 
Alexandra stiff against such things, dismisses her. 
Maggy for a time enjoys luxury with Woolf until he 
marries Lady Susan, “ the slangy sister of a decadent 
peer.” Alexandra has her ups and downs until she 
at length is loved for her own sake, marries and lives 
happily ever after. Maggy in her first despair tries 
to commit suicide, but is wonderfully saved. She 
too is fortunate, and finds Lord Chalfont willing to 
make her his wife and tihe mistress of Purton Towers. 
Whether matters would turn out quite like this in 
actual life may perhaps be doubtful, but the author 
has managed her story with consummate skill, and the 
reader can find no inherent improbability in the out- 
come of the tale as here told. As a realistic descrip- 
tion of theatrical life, or, at least, certain phases of 
it, we may very well believe that it is largely founded 
on actual facts, and that many of the scenes and 
incidents are drawn from experience. The characters 
are all sketched with wonderful skill and artistic 
insight. Maggy and Alexandra are both real live 
persons, while Woolf, and De Preyne, the theatrical 
manager, who may be called the villains of the story, 
are without doubt photographic if composite portraits. 

The Daughter Pays. By Mrs. Baillie Reynolds. 
(Cassell & Co.). — Though the callous and unselfish 
mother, Mrs. Mynors, “ had cast her child 
bound into the hellish gulf of a loveless marriage 
. and with her daughter’s life as the 
price had purchased 1 freedom from want,” 
she all unknowingly had really done her a service. 
For when the story ends, Virginia, by her simple 
genuine goodness, had entirely conquered her hus- 
band’s evil intentions. He found himself wholly mis- 
taken in her character, and the desire for revenge 
on her mother, who had treated him so badly, was at 
length replaced by real mutual love and affection 
between husband and wife. At first, however, as was 
inevitable after her marriage, Virginia had a terrible 
time, and till the real position was understood she cer- 
tainly paid for her mother’s wrongdoing. Throughout 
Mrs. Reynolds shows a firm grip of essentials. The 
contrast between the unfeeling, selfish mother and the 
patient, loving and really affectionate daughter is very 
forcibly brought out. It may be that she wished to 
illustrate the fact that a daughter does not always 
inherit the shortcomings of a mother, and also that 
when a young man really loves it is not wise to allow 
considerations of what may seem to be mere prudence 
too much weight. We are quite sure that Gerald 
Rosenberg and his father regretted the result of their 
over-cautiousness, but it is possible that if Virginia 
had been allowed to marry Gerald she would not have 
enjoyed quite such complete happiness as that which 
came to her after her troubles were ended. Mrs. 
Reynolds has given us a powerful, effective story, 
which is certain to find the widest acceptance among 
the novel-reading public.

From Messrs. Cassell & Co. 

Is God Dead ? By Newman Flower. — Some, perhaps 
many, persons who firmly believe in Christianity may well 
feel some doubt when they see the terrible outburst of 
crime and wickedness which has been too evident in the 
present great war. Mr. Newman Flower, the well-known 
editor of Cassell’s “ Storyteller,” has here put together 
some half dozen imaginary sketches which, while they 
graphically realise the evil side of the present crisis, 
yet go on to illustrate the truth, which seems sometimes 
hidden, that after all God has not wholly abandoned 
the care of mankind. If God is all we believe, he asks, 
why has he permitted this war? and the final answer is, 
to increase the faith of those who really believe in Him. 
It is an arresting, striking little book with force and 
imagination, and will no doubt, as the writer expects, 
excite a good deal of earnest and thoughtful discussion 
on a question which is as momentous as it is fascinating. 

Thoughts and After-Thoughts. By Herbert Beerbohm 
Tree. — It is satisfactory to know that Sir Herbert Beer- 
bohm Tree’s interesting volume of miscellaneous papers, 
first published some two years ago, has proved so success- 
ful that a popular shilling edition is now demanded. 
All the more so as works of this necessarily fugitive and 
miscellaneous character cannot always expect to find a 
permanent sale. Sir Herbert Tree will now, no doubt, 
find his way to a largely increased circle of readers who 
are sure to enjoy the very varied fare that he here sets 
before them. 

From Messrs. Constable & Co. 

War and Christianity from tjie Russian Point of View : 
Three Conversations by Vladimir Solovyof. With an 
Introduction by Stephen Graham. — The author of this 
book, as Mr. Graham informs us, is Russia’s greatest 
philosopher, and one of the greatest of her poets, and 
he died in 1901. The year before he published this book, 
which at once attracted considerable attention. Now that 
Russian matters and Russian literature are receiving a 

new attention, the present translation will be particularly 
welcome. For while the war has caused much searching 
of hearts in England, in Christian Russia it arouses much 
less misgiving. All that the author has to say on this 
subject is worth serious attention, and the present issue 
of the book deserves our warmest thanks. 

From Messrs. Gall & Inglis. 

The Graded Road Maps of England : West Yorkshire. 
— For motorists and cyclists the publishers’ series of 
graded road maps have won wide approbation. The 
clear distinction of the various road services, and the 
fact that all bad hills, stiff hills and summits are care- 
fully marked, adds very materially to their usefulness. 
The latest addition is the sheet for West Yorkshire, 
which includes both a good deal of the wild and attrac- 
tive moorland country and also the thickly populated 
districts of Leeds, Bradford, and the great manufacturing 
towns. In both districts the special features of this series 
will prove advantageous. 

From Messrs. George G. Harrap & Co. 

Serbia : Her People, History, and Aspirations. By 
Woislav M. Petrovitch. — The author, who is attached to 
the Serbian Legation in England, has already made him- 
self known to those who are interested in the fortunes and 
history of Serbia by his informing volume, “ Hero Tales 
and Legends of the Serbians.” Here he provides, in 
handy and convenient compass, a well-written and well- 
proportioned history of his country, in which the principal 
events are exhibited in orderly and proper relief. He 
emphasises very strongly the fact that the peasantry of 
Serbia have for centuries maintained a strong and living 
desire for liberty and freedom, a desire which all will 
hope may speedily be satisfied. He has brought his book 
well up to date by a complete account of the events con- 
nected with the murder of the Austrian Archduke at 
Sarajevo, and a vivid description of the gallant and brave 
manner in which the unprepared Serbians managed to

throw back and defeat the “punitive” attack of their 
Austrian enemies. 

In Victorian Times, with some reference also to the 
Times of William IV. Short Character Studies of the 
Great Figures of the Period. By Edith L. Elias. — The 
Victorian era seems to be slowly receding into the back- 
ground, but most of us still remember it, and the present 
volume, which is a companion to the author’s previous 
books dealing with the Tudor, Stuart, and Georgian 
Times, should be read with widespread interest. It is 
divided into five “phases” — the Kingship, the State; 
Empire Buildin" : Invention, Discovery, and Science; 

Religion and Philanthropy; the Fine Arts. In each we 
have vivid and carefully drawn sketches of the principal 
representative figures — William IV. and Queen Victoria ; 
the great political leaders, Peel, Palmerston, Bright, 
Gladstone, Parnell; the Empire builders, Laurence, 
Rhodes, Roberts ; discoverers, Stephenson, Livingstone, 
Lister ; religious teachers. Cardinal Newman, 
Spurgeon; painters. Turner, Rossetti, Watts. These 
names do not quite exhaust the list, and we need only 
add that the portraits are excellently drawn and that 
the photograph of each great figure is always added. 

From Messrs. Headley Brothers. 

Grimm's Fairy Tales. A new Translation by Ernest 
Beeson. Pictured by George Soper. — A picture book by 
Mr. George Soper has for some time been an annual 
event, and this year he has taken as his subject the peren- 
nially attractive fairy tales collected by the Brothers 
Grimm. These are now so well known that nothing need 
be said, and we have only to certify that Mr. Soper’s 
pictures, whether in colour or in black-and-white, are 
fully equal to the best of his previous efforts, and 
greater praise we cannot give. He throughout preserves 
his own individuality of style, and he illustrates, in the 
proper meaning of the term, the various scenes and in- 
cidents which he selects for artistic treatment. The 
general format of the book is handsome and attractive, 
and it should be in wide demand. 

From Mr. W. Heinemann. 

Beggars on Horseback. By F. Tennyson Jesse. — A 
new book by the author of that striking novel, “ The 
Milky Way,” is sure to attract a good deal of attention, 
and the eight stories here collected are each and all of 
exceptional merit. Miss Jesse is clearly endowed with 
an individual imagination and a notable faculty of 
striking and effective delineation. In the first she sets 
forth with curious felicity a love episode between a 
young painter who believes he has a future before him, 
and a native peasant girl in the out-of-the-way country 
in the Alpes Maritimes. The entanglement is very 
cleverly described, and the reader is much relieved to 
learn that at the end it goes no further. Another vivid 
tale is the account of the execution of Miss Sophia 
Bendigo, a young Cornish lady who had been found 
guilty of poisoning her father, when, in fact, she only 
intended to give him a love philtre to ensure his favour- 
able permission for her to marry her lover, one Captain 
Crandon, who was altogether bad, and really ought to 
have suffered the penalty of the crime which he had 
instigated. The miserable story is sympathetically 
and effectively told, and the reader’s sympathy with 
the poor victim is at once strongly enlisted. Another 
Cornish love story, “ The Mask,” is a powerful 
piece of work, while the story of the coffin ship (which 
would return home safely when it was intended to have 
been sunk) and its terrible but unexpectedly conscientious 
captain is a piece of vigorous and realistic narrative 
we have not often found surpassed in modern fiction. 

Among the Ruins. By Gomez Carrilo. Translated by 
Florence Simonds.— Testimonies to the horror and ruin 
caused b' r the Germans in the territories the3’ invaded 
continue to accumulate, and the present volume, for its 
sober, moderate tone, the picturesque vigour and graphic 
pen with which the various scenes and incidents are 
described, can hardly fail to make a deep impression 
on every reader. The author is Senor Gomez Carrilo, a 
Spanish war correspondent, who was among the first to 
visit the parts of France which have been recovered 
from the Germans since the Battle of the Marne. It is 
quite clear that the descriptions are faithful and un- 
exaggerated, and he emphasises how the infamous 
cruelties of the Germans have stiffened the French people 
to a determined and unconquerable resistance. Senor 
Carrilo describes most of the scenes of the war from the 

environs of Paris down to Verdun, and his chapters on 
the ravages at Senlis and Rheims, the fighting at 
Verdun and in the Argonne, his pictures of the German 
prisoners, at first believing they were sure to be shot, of 
the French soldiers in the trenches, of the Alpine Chas- 
seurs in the Vosges, are wonderfully vivid, informing 
and suggestive. 

From Messrs. Hodder & Stoughton. 

The Art of History, with special reference to the 
Historians of the Nineteenth Century. By Edith C. 
Batho. — The University of London Press have just pub- 
lished this verv admirable essay, which obtained the John 
Oliver Hobbes Memorial Scholarship. Miss Bathe’s 
treatment of her subject is most scholarly and sug- 
gestive, and what she has to say is always very 
well worth reading. We may just now profitably note 
her acute remark that “ there are not too many great out- 
standing heroic figures in the history of England, but 
in any time there is England itself behind everything, 
always the same, the force which moulds the deeds of 

From The Iris Publishing Co. 

Le Cippe. Par Claude Kamme. — This is a striking 
and effective work, written in French, which takes the 
form of a series of letters written by a woman to a 
friend while he is alive, and then after his death, in 
order to erect to him a memorial tombstone — le Cippe — 
which gives the little book its title. The publishers 
claim, and in our judgment with good reason, that the 
letters make a pathetic human document with definite 
value from the psychologic standpoint, while the literary 
style in which it is written reaches an exceptionally high 
standard of excellence. 

From Messrs. T. Werner Laurie, Ltd. 

The British Manual of Physical Training. By C. F. 
Upton, Lieutenant Royal Army Medical Corps. — There 
are several manuals of physical training in the market, 
but Lieut. Upton’s new book is written to introduce a 
British system of Training, in which, in a very few and 
simple exercises, every muscle of the body can be exer- 
cised without apparatus, without fatigue and without 
monotony. The author further claims that it can be very 
easily applied to school routine, particularly as it 
makes possible a great economy of time. The author is 
at least physically well qualified to deal with his subject, 
as last year he won the Light-Weight Open Wrestling 
Championship of the World, and he specially insists 
on the fact that his system is superior to the systems 
hitherto taught by Germans, Danes and Swedes, and it 
is obviously pieferable that it is better that Englishmen 
should be trained by English rather than by foreign 
methods. He rightly points out that now is the time to 
pay special attention to this very important question, 
which hitherto has been too much neglected. The book 
should certainl'- prove very welcome, and it deserves the 
most careful attention of all who are interested in the 
continued physical welfare of the English people, a 
matter which is now more than ever essential for the 
recuperation of our national strength after the strain 
and sacrifice of the preat European war.

A Fortnight at the Front. By the Rt. Rev. H. Russell 
Wakefield, -Bishop of Birmingham. With illustrations. — 
In this interesting shilling brochure the Bishop of Bir- 
mingham gives us his general impressions formed during 
a fortnight’s visit to the Front in France. He tells us 
himself that though his view may have been superficial 
it was certainly comprehensive. His first chapter, which 
is entitled “ A Cure for Pessimism,” may be said to set 
the key-note. In the last chapter, “ Hope for the 
Future,” the Bishop reviews the chief characteristics of 
the respective combatants, and concludes that in his judg- 
ment “ the war is a fight between right and wrong, 
between God and evil.” 

From Messrs. John Long, Ltd. 

Three Persons. By a Peer. — The writer, who 
has given us several striking and notable novels 
under this pseudonym, again shows no falling 
off either in the skilfulness of the plot or the 
graphic vigour with which the tale is told. We 
are not quite certain who are the particular three per- 
sons to whem the title particularly refers, for though 
the hero is no doubt Parcival Hill Drinsmere, who had

quite intended to be a soldier, but had been practically 
compelled by his mother to accept a family living when 
it fell vacant, who the other two persons may be is more 
doubtful. Whether they are Lucia, whom he married, and 
who later left him, and sweet Anne Lynton, whom he would 
have then liked to marry, and with whom at the last 
he was glad to find happiness and peace, or. whether 
Mrs. Grace Loftus, who forsook her invalid husband 
in hope of making herself Countess of Harrington, is 
intended to be included, we cannot decide. Nor indeed 
does it make any great difference. The writer, as we 
already know, can describe life and its varied incidents 
with force and realism, and his novel, as are its prede- 
cessors, is full of effective interest, romantic passion, and 
the curious contrasts which life so often offers. 

Ursula's Marriage. By James Blyth.— Ursula Martin 
was the only daughter and heiress of the late Sam 
Martin, who died a millionaire, having made his money 
in pickles and sauce. She married, as the story tells 
us, Reginald Bunch, a younger brother of her father’s 
partner, a handsome and attractive officer, who never 
tried to live on his means, and only married her for her 
money. How the poor young lady was unfortunately 
brought to accept his advances, although she really loved 
her cousin, Dick Martin, is set forth with particular 
skill, and the shameful means that her husband employed 
by inducing a private in his regiment (who happened 
to be an illegitimate son of her father’s, who in his 
younger days was by no means all that he should have 
been) to personate her long-lost brother adds a distinct 
element of interest and excitement to the tale. In the 
end Reginald comes to the bad end he deserves, and 
Ursula is at last set free to marry Dick, whom she really 
loves. Mr. Blyth has told his story in his own individu- 
ally realistic manner. The plot is bold, not to say 
audacious, and it is carried through with all that 
forcefulness and vigour which make the writer’s stories 
so exceptionally popular with the novel-reading public. 

From Messrs. Macmillan & Co. 

The Kingdom of the Winding Road. By Cornelia 
Meigs. — We may fairly describe this pleasant whimsical 
tale as a fairy story, and the adventures which the 

beggar meets with on the winding road are told with a 
skill which fascinates with a pleasant and individual 
imagination. The tale comes to us from across the 
Atlantic, but in its general outlines and surroundings 
may very well hold its own with the best of similar 
stories produced by English writers. The reader is at 
once interested, and his eager attention is safely held 
till the end of the story is reached. Miss Frances White 
contributes some coloured illustrations of more than 
usual distinction. She has very happily grasped the 
meaning and intention of the author in the various 
scenes and incidents she so pleasantly reproduces, and 
the book should find as warm a welcome here as in 

From Messrs. Stanley Paul & Co. 

Little Sir Galahad. By Phoebe Gray. — We have here 
an American story of some boy members of the Galahad 
Club. We first meet with Francis Willett, an active 
self-satisfied lad, who trounces some young rascals who 
have upset the basket of clean washing that Mary Alice 
Brown is taking back after the wash. In due course this 
brings us to another little lad who seems to be a per- 
manent cripple with a spine complaint, but in spite of this 
he proves a real young Galahad. In time he gets better and 
turns out a wonderful caricaturist. The temperance 
campaign in America is brought in, and the point is 
emphasised that it is difficult to be a real campaigner 
unless one’s personal interest is engaged. How Mary 
Alice develops, how Francis, the son of a wealthy man, 
first goes wrong and is afterwards reclaimed, and’ finally 
marries Mary, in spite of her position; all this makes an 
interesting and instructive tale which holds the reader’s 
eager attention to the very end.

The Return of the Lord: a Series of Lectures. By 
Ernest Baker.— A second and enlarged edition, brought 
up to date, and embodying the author’s remarks on the 
war, and other recent events. His argument is clearly 
and forcefully stated, and the last chapter, which deals 
with the attitude which Christians who accept the 
doctrine of Christ’s early return to this world ought 
to take up, is particularly well worth attention.

Knowledge and Experience. 

The former can be obtained in a compara- 
tively short time by anyone possessed of 
average intelligence, but the experience 
necessary to enable such knowledge to be 
properly applied can only be acquired by 
continuous and careful study. For over 
Sixty Years we have been intimately con- 
nected with the Bookselling, Stationery and 
Printing Trades in all their branches, and are 
thus able to place at the disposal of Clients

And other well-known Authors. 



THE CRIMSON FIELD. Halliwell Sutcliffe 

For the theme of this new romance Mr. Halliwell Sutcliffe has gone 
further back into English History than in any of his previous books, 
and, under the title of “ The Crimson Field,” gives us a vivid story of 
Flodden, that strangely varied battle, with its unusual contrasts, alter- 
nating superiority on either side, and the death of the Scottish King 
in the midst of the struggle. In the first historical romance of the 
modern school written on the period of that momentous conflict the 
author approaches Flodden Field with the march of the dalesmen of 
Wharfe to the scene of the fight, and shows their share in the last 
wild charge that settled the issue of the battle. 


(3s. 6d.) 

Maurice Hewlett 

Mr. Maurice Hewlett’s new work is a saga told with the wealth of 
detail and vivid actuality which have made the author’s excursions 
into primitive Scandinavian history and legend as fascinating an I as 
strongly human in their appeal as the mediaeval romances which first 
made him famous. 


Eden Phillpotts 

A vivid story of love and high adventure on the Cornish coast. Mr. 
Phillpotts’ books are quite unlike those of any other novelist, and his 
latest, strongly individual, is likely to prove itself one of the best 
novels of the year. 


Harold Bindloss 

Academy.— “ This author’s novels are terse, powerful, yet graceful, 
showing intimate knowledge and acute observation, never overweighted 
with description, yet containing many delightful pictures.” 


William Le Queux 

Mr. Le Queux can always be relied upon for a story crammed with 
excitement, and in this new tale, which concerns a vendetta and its 
workings, he is seen at his very best. 

HUMAN NATURE. Marie Connor Leighton 

Romance, mystery, and sensation, three ingredients skilfully blended 
as Mrs. Leighton alone knows how, go to make a most holding and 
engrossing story from this popular writer’s pen. 


Fred M. White 

Abounds in tense and exciting situations, and Mr. White’s critics are 
of opinion that he has never written a better story. 


«J S Fletcher 


Mr. Paul Trent’s stories “The Vow” and “ The Foundling” were 
powerful tales with a motive. “Bentley s Conscience,” as its title 
indicates, is of the same school. 


There is no lack of excitement in this brightly written novel, which 
holds the attention and interest of the reader to the end. The popular 
author of “ Sanders of the River " again displays his gifts of originality 
and crisp dialogue.

"FROM MONS TO YPRES WITH FRENCH," A Personal Narrative, 

by Frederic Coleman. Crown 8vo , fully illustrated, 

and an up-to-date Map, specially drawn. 6/- net. 

We hope to publish the above important work early this 
month, and shall be pleased to receive your esteemed order by 
re turn post. 

There is every indication that the demand for this work will 
exceed that of any war book hitherto issued. Mr. Coleman is one 
of the best-known civilians attached to our Army. Since his 
return from the Front he has been lecturing to tens of thousands 
of people at big centres in the country, on his first-hand 
experiences with the General Headquarters Staff ; this, too, with 
the approval of the Military Authorities. The whole of his most 
interesting and thrilling work, with the exception of some 
thirty-five lines that had little or no real public interest, 
has been passed by the Government Press Bureau. 

This work is unique, in so far as it describes in about 
350 pages some of the most brilliant work accomplished by our 
First and Second Cavalry Divisions, concerning which very little 
has hitherto been recorded, although the promised Official 
Reports are long overdue. 

Nearly everybody who had friends taking part in the great 
retreat from Mons is bound to read this important work, and a 
large proportion will require additional copies for presentation.

A NEW NOVEL By Guy Thorne. (In preparation.) 


By Olga Racster and Jessica Grove. 

Miss Olga Racster is well known as the dramatic and musical 
critic of the Cape Times, under the pen name of “ Treble Violl,” 
and Miss Jessica Grove is a gifted member of the family of 
which Sir George Grove was the head. The story, which is 
laid in South Africa, gives fresh impressions of life at the 
Cape and up-country. 

SANSPRIEL: The Promised Land 

By Alvide Prydz, Author of “ The Heart of the Northern 
Sea.” Authorised Translation from the Norwegian by 
Hester Coddington. 

“ Sanpriel ” is an unusual story in which the translator has 
retained the foreign flavour of its picturesque Norwegian 
setting. It deals with intimate human relations without the 
hectic touch, is readable, has a true poetic quality, and carries 
the cool, refreshing air of Norway’s mountains and streams 
into every moment of the story. 


By D. Broadway. Crown 8vo. Cloth. 6s. 

This is the story of a marriage between an English girl and 
a Boer farmer which took place under unusual circumstances. 

“ The Longest Way Round ” portrays the gradual drawing 
together of the two who at the outset appeared so hopelessly 
antagonistic, and is typical of the mutual adjustment of both 
Boer and Briton which is taking place all over South Africa 
at the present day. 


By A. Brownlow Fforde. 

The Daily Chronicle said of his previous hook : “ Might well 
have been written by Mr. Kipling in one of his lighter moods.”

March, 1916 


Messrs. E. Marlborough & Co. notify the trade 
that owing to the serious increase of costs 
of materials and production they are making all 
prices for their “ Self-Taught Series ” and other 
foreign language publications net from March 1st. 

Mr. T. Fisher Unwin has arranged to supply 
the trade, home and export, with the general pub- 
lications, but not the medical books, of Messrs. 
John Bale, Sons and Danielsson. 

Messrs. Simpkin, Marshall & Co. notify that 
they now have the sole trade supply of all Mr. 
David Nutt’s publications. All orders should 
therefore now be addressed to them. 

The Cambridge University Press announces 
that the published prices of “ The Cambridge 
Manuals of Science and Literature” are now raised 
to is. 3d. net, and that new net prices for a number 
of the larger publications come into effect in place 
of the present subject prices. A list of these 
prices is being printed in a special Supplement to 
the Catalogue. All books published at 6s. or 
under, except books published at net prices, are 
now charged to the trade at scrip, instead of trade 
sale price, and without odd copy. 1 he discounts 
allowed at settlement and the terms for net books 
will, for the present, remain unaltered. The 
above changes do not apply to the terms for 
Cambridge Bibles and Prayer-books. 

Messrs. Morgan & Scott notify that, following 
upon, and in consequence of, the serious all- 
round increase in the cost of production, they have 
found it necessary to alter the published price of 
certain of their publications, and to revise gener- 
ally the trade terms thereon, as from March xst, 
1916. The published prices of “Songs and 
Solos,” “The Christian Choir,” “Alexander’s 
Hymns,” and of all Hymn and Tune Books, in- 
cluding “The Men’s Hymn Book” and “The 
Evangelistic Hymn Book,” will be strictly net. 
In the case of the above and all other books pub- 
lished at a net price, these in future will be sup- 
plied at twelve copies as twelve, and at ninepence 
per shilling of published price. 

Publishing and Bookselling in Paris this year 
though better than last year is still very far from 
its normal conditions. The year before the w r ar 
the Paris Publishers’ Christmas Catalogue con- 
tained 356 pages, and 73 publishing houses were 
represented. At Christmas, 1914, after the out- 
break of the war the pages numbered only 119, 
representing only 29 publishers. This year the 
pages are more by 40, but still nearly 200 less 
than normal. The mortality on the battlefield, 
which has been terrible, has been very greatly felt 
among publishers and booksellers. The house 
of Hachette has already lost 54 of its employees 
in action. In the same way many young and 
promising writers have fallen, and the loss of 
France by their deaths is very serious. Among 
the dead may be noted Ernest Psichari, the grand- 
son of M. Renan ; Pierre Leroz-Beaulieu ; Guy de 
Cassagnac, son of the famous Deputy, Claude 
Casimir Perier ; Jacques Rambaud ; Jean Maspero ; 
Georges Latagne, son of the Director of La 
Liberte ; and others hardly less well known and 

Booksellers’ Provident Institution. — At the 

monthly meeting of the board of directors, held 
at Stationers’ Hall on Wednesday, February 
16th, the sum of ^103 19s. 8d. was granted for 
the relief of members and widow's of members, 
and the receipt of the following donations was 
announced Messrs. Williams & Norgate, 
jQi is. ; Readers of “The Christian,” per Messrs. 
Morgan & Scott, Ltd., £1 is. The death was re- 
ported of a widow whose husband had received 
assistance to the amount of ^77 15s., and who 
had herself been granted ^189 2s. 6d. The 
amount of the husband’s subscription was ^42. 
Mr. C. J. Longman presided at the meeting, and 
there were also present: Messrs. J. R. Blade, 
L. Carrdus, J. Clark, J. Cooper, J. Foster, A. W. 
Gatfield, J. W. Harden, C. H. Hollingsworth, 
F. J. James, W. A. Kelk, W. Longman, J. Meade,

Manchester and District Booksellers’ and Sta- 
tioners’ Association. — Among the many social 
gatherings to the credit of the little circle of hard- 
working officials of this Association, not one has 
exceeded, in the spirit of pleasant companionship 
and thorough success, the meeting held on Satur- 
day, February 12th, in aid of the British and 
Foreign Sailors’ Society. Though Zepp. 

speculations may have debarred a few indi- 
viduals from joining, eighty members and 
friends assembled, and the evening passed 

very swiftly and pleasantly. Further proof 
of the keen interest was evinced, as prac- 
tically the whole company stayed to applaud 
the following winners: — Ladies, 1st, Miss Salter, 
191 ; 2nd, Miss Meade, 189; 3rd, Mrs. Mitchell, 
186. Gentlemen, 1st, Mr. Reid, 182; 2nd, Mrs. 
Hallsworth (as gent.), 180; 3rd, Mr. Baldwin, 
180. Lowest Lady. — Miss Edev, 142. Lowest 
Gent. — Mr. Baghurst, 150. The fun waxed fast 
and furious when Mr. Baghurst (S.P.C.K.) w f as 
awarded his prize- — a “Thumbs up” manikin. We 
were pleased to see the oldest member, Mr. H. M. 
Cater, along with his wife and daughter, again 
in evidence. After his spell at munition work 
his health broke down, but once more his wonder- 
ful powers of recovery have won through. The 
following members generously provided the prizes 
and whist cards: — Mr. F. Johnson (Williams & 
Norgate), President, Mr. F. Mitchell (secondhand 
bookseller), Mr. J. Noble (John Heywood, Ltd.), 
Mr. J. S. Smith (John Heywood, Ltd.), Mr. A. 
Sutton (secondhand bookseller), Mr. F. J. Barlow 
(S.P.C.K.), Hon. Treas., Messrs. A. and S. 
Walker, Ltd., and Mr. Billinge (Cooper, Davidson 
& Walkden) provided scoring cards. 

Mr. T. Fisher Unwin has just published Pro- 
fessor J. H. Morgan’s very important book 
“ German Atrocities : An Official Investigation.” 

Messrs. Herbert Jenkins, Ltd., will publish 

shortly “ My Secret Service in Vienna, Sofia, 
Constantinople, Nish, Belgrade, Asia Minor,” by 
the young journalist who has recently attained so 
much fame as “The Man who Dined with the 
Kaiser.” His story is full of excitement, and his 
documents have been for some time in the 
possession of his publishers. 

March, 1916 



The Paper Commission which has been 
appointed to apportion the supplies of paper — the 
normal importation of which is to be reduced by 
one-third — has been constituted as follows : — The 
Rt. Hon. Sir T. P. Whittaker, M.P. (Chairman), 
Sir Rowland Bailey (formerly Comptroller of the 
Stationery Office), Mr. George Brown (Messrs. T. 
Nelson & Sons), Mr. W. Howard Hazell (Messrs. 
Hazell, Watson & Viney), Mr. James Jeremiah 
(Messrs. E. Hulton & Co.), Sir Frederick 

Macmillan (Messrs. Macmillan & Co.), Sir Walter 
Nugent, Bt., M.P. ( Freeman’s Journal), Mr. 
Ernest Parke ( Daily News), Mr. Oswald 
Partington, M.P., Mr. Albert Reed (Paper Manu- 
facturer), Rt. Hon. Sir Albert Spicer, M.P. (Paper 
Manufacturer). Mr. Runciman, in answer to a 
question in Parliament, has stated that the Com- 
mission is formed on an expert and not on a 
representative basis, but in order to secure experts 
who have the full confidence of the others in their 
respective branches of the paper trade, the various 
trade associations were consulted. With the 
exception of Sir Thomas Whittaker and Sir 
Rowland Bailey practically every member of the 
Commission is the nominee of a trade association. 
Mr. Henry Bradly, it is stated, has resigned from 
the directorate of Messrs. Lepard & Smith’s, 
wholesale stationers, to take up an appointment as 
expert adviser to the Commission. 

Messrs. Doubleday, Page & Co., New York, 
are opening a new bookshop at 38th Street and 
Fifth Avenue, which has several new and interest- 
ing features. It will be laid out like the private 
library of a fine old country house, with massive 
tables, comfortable chairs, heavily shaded reading 
lamps, and every other facility for comfortable 
book browsing. It will combine the comfort and 
cosiness of a private library and the card index 
efficiency of a big public library, with the most 
approved methods of placing books before the 
public for sale. It is avowedly an experiment, 
and booksellers on this side of the Atlantic would 
do well to bear it in mind, and to note whether or 
not the new departure proves a success. 

Mr. E. W. Cole, the well-known bookseller of 
Melbourne, as we learn from The Book Lover, 
celebrated his 84th birthday on January 4th last. 
He was a native of Woodchurch, a village in 
Kent. Soon after the Crimean war he went to the 
Cape of Good Hope, and afterwards to Melbourne. 
After various experiences he commenced business 
in 1862 as a secondhand bookseller in the old 
Eastern Market — Paddy’s Market, as it was then 
called, in that city. Here the enterprise grew, and 
he moved into larger premises at the corner of the 
market and Bourke Street, and later, in 1873, he 
opened the first Book Arcade in Bourke Street. 
Subsequently he built his present commanding 
premises, which run right through from Collins 
Street to Bourke Street, where the establishment 
is rightly regarded as one of the sights of Mel- 
bourne. He has practically retired from active 
work for some years, and his many friends will 
now offer him their very hearty congratulations. 

Messrs. Constable & Co. have just added to 
their Two Shilling Westminster Library of Fiction 
“Audrey,” Miss Mary Johnston’s successful 
story, which has already been reprinted eight 
times since it was first issued. 

A Publisher, writing in a daily contemporary, 
criticises very severely the action of the Govern- 
ment in their announced intention of restricting 
the import of paper-making material. He points 
out, with much cogency, that as soon as the 
Board of Trade talked of restricting the import 
of paper-making material the price of all manu- 
factured stock was immediately doubled. That 
meant, according to a modest estimate, that the 
stocks held by the trade were increased in value 
by five millions sterling, and this without a single 
farthing of extra expense to the trade — a sum 
equal to our present daily expenditure on the war. 
He goes on to argue that such a gift cannot be 
justified, and could easily have been obviated if 
the Government had prohibited any increase in 
the prices of paper ready for use at the date the 
restriction was announced. If this obvious course 
had been taken the consumer would have been 
protected against exorbitant profits, and the pro- 
ducer would have continued to make the reason- 
able profit on which he had figured his business. 
The objection that such a prohibition would have 
interfered with the usual laws of supply and de- 
mand in this instance hardly applies, as the State 
has stepped in and prevented the operation of 
such laws, just as the sudden damming of a river 
interferes with its normal ebb and flow. The 
point thus raised is one of considerable import- 
ance, and it is to be hoped that it will immediately 
be brought to the serious notice of the Govern- 
ment, and that some action will at once be taken 
to remedy the grievance of which all consumers of 
paper now so justly complain. 

The City of New York, like London, is becom- 
ing more and more the centre of the publishing 
trade of the country, including all kinds of print- 
ing, bookbinding, & c. In 1909 New York pro- 
duced something like a quarter of the entire output 
of the United States. It has a large share of big 
establishments, approximately one-tenth of the 
establishments in the whole country, and one-fifth 
of the capital. It is further worth noting that, in 
spite of, perhaps because of, these facts the rate 
of wages paid to workmen in the publishing and 
printing industries in New York are slightly 
higher than those paid elsewhere. Writers, illus- 
trators, and artists foregather very numerously in 
or near New York, the city never suffers from 
any shortage of labour, and it usually possesses 
superior training and proficiency. Book dealers 
and book buyers visit New York in greater 
numbers than any other city. This naturally 
has its influence on the growth and development 
of the book and publishing trades in a city which 
claims to be the largest manufacturing and trade 
centre in the world. 

Messrs. Cassell & Co. have just published a 
new novel by Miss Ruby Ayres, entitled “ The 
Road that Bends”; and “The Green Orchard,” 
a new story by Mr. Andrew Soutar, author of 
“Charity Corner.” They have also added Mr. 
Le Queux’s “The Money Spider” to their Six- 
penny Novel Series; “The Wanderer’s Neck- 
lace,” by Sir H. Rider Haggard, to their Shilling 
Novels; and they will issue at once a popular 
half-crown edition of “ The Life of Lord Roberts, 
Y.C.,” by Sir George Forrest, C.I.E.

The British Industries Fair, 1916, which has 
been open for the past fortnight at the Victoria 
and Albert Museum, South Kensington, under the 
management of the Commercial Intelligence 
Branch of the Board of Trade, is the successor of 
the similar exhibition which was held at the 
Agricultural Hall last year. This year the Fair, 
which is confined to British manufacturing firms 
only, who may not show any articles other than 
those of their own manufacture, includes the 
following trades only : Toys and Games, Earthen- 
ware, Porcelain and China, Glass and Glassware, 
Fancy Goods, Stationery, and Printing. In each 
trade the number of exhibitors was encouraging, 
and the attendance of visitors often very large. 
It would certainly seem that the plan of carrying 
out these exhibitions on the initiative and under 
the management of the Government is producing 
excellent results. The principal object, as is

Industries Fair at the Victoria and Albert Museum. 

generally known, is to assist British firms to 
capture trade formerly in the hands of their 
German and Austro-Hungarian competitors, an 
aim with which we are sure everyone will agree. 
The part of the exhibition with which we are 
particularly concerned is that part of the Printing 
section concerned with Books and Magazines, and 
in this the publishing trade was not very 
well represented, the Oxford University Press, 
Messrs. G. G. Harrap & Co., the Medici Society, 
Messrs. Raphael Tuck & Son, Ltd., being almost 
the only names well known as book publishers. 
The section included Messrs. Thomas De La Rue 
& Co., whose diaries and books on whist, bridge, 
and other card games are very popular, while 
Messrs. G. Delgado, Ltd., Messrs. T. Forman & 

March, 1916 

Sons, Nottingham, Messrs. G. Pulman & Son, 
Messrs. Raithby, Lawrence & Co., Leicester, all 
showed various pamphlets and booklets. Messrs. 
Unwin Brothers and Messrs. Taylor, Garnett, 
Evans & Co., of Stockport, showed many fine 
examples of artistic printing. The exhibit of 
Messrs. G. G. Harrap & Co. included several very 
attractive books for children, while works of 
importance in general literature received much 
attention. The stand of the Oxford University 
Press, as always, showed many very attractive 
and sometimes unique examples of bookbinding, 
while the India-paper Bibles and Prayer Books 
were naturally in evidence. Specimens of the 
work done at Oxford in chromolithography and 
collotype indicated the high standard of excellence 
to which these methods of reproduction have now 
been brought, while the standard books on show 
in various languages illustrated the very wide area 
which the activities of the Press include. The 
other departments of Printing, Letterpress Pro- 
cess and Lithography were represented by many 
firms of wide and established reputation. Messrs. 
George Philip &’ Son, and Geographia, Ltd., both 
made an effective display of their well-known 
maps, plans and charts, while Die and Relief 
Stamping, Embossing, the various forms of 
Engraving, Process Blocks, Show Cards, and 
Transfers all bore weighty testimony to the ability 
of English craftsmen to cope successfully with 
their many competitors. Some fine examples of 
bookbinding by Messrs. Birdsall & Son, North- 
ampton, and Messrs. Eason & Son, Ltd., Dublin, 
deservedly attracted much attention, and the 
representative show of Calendars, Postcards, 
Christmas Cards, Diaries, and Pocket Books show 
the established excellence of our home manufac- 
tures. Messrs. John Walker & Co.’s Diaries, the 
Fountain Pens of Messrs. De La Rue & Co. and 
Messrs. Mabie, Todd & Co., and the ample exhibit 
of paper in various forms and shapes at least 
shows the extent of the English trade in these 
articles, and may, it is to be hoped, remind the 
new Paper Distributing Commission that even in 
war time the Paper Trade with its many subordi- 
nate and accessory trades cannot be restricted 
without very serious loss to all concerned. If the 
Exhibition as a whole may be taken as any effec- 
tive evidence, it is sufficiently clear that the position 
which the English paper trade and manufacture 
has gained is now firmly established and that 
English manufacturers are still very well able to 
hold their own. 

Messrs. Gay & Hancock announce “ Let Priest 
and People Weep : A War Romance of the 
Belgian Frontier,” bv Richard Shanahan. The 
concluding episode is based on the first massacre 
by the Germans on August 8, 1914, and the details 
follow almost exactly the official report. They 
will also have ready at the end of the month a 
new reprint of the popular shilling edition of 
‘‘The World Beautiful,” by Lilian Whiting. 

Mr. John Lane has published a popular shilling 
edition of ‘‘The MS. in a Red Box,” a novel of 
which at the time of its first publication the author 
was not known. Mr. Lane reprints the original 
preface, and as he does not even now mention the 
author’s name we may presume that the mystery 
is still unsolved. It must be extremely rare for 
the author of so successful a tale to persist In 
concealing his identity.

“ The Dictionary of the Apostolic Church, 

the first volume of which, Aaron Lystra, has 
just been published by Messrs. 1 . & T. Clark, 
is another of the great series of .diction- 
aries which Dr. James Hastings has edited 
for that well-known firm. It is practically 
a supplement to the “ Dictionary of Christ 
and the Gospels,” which has already been 
published, and it carries on the history of the 
Church as far as the end of the first century. To- 
gether with that Dictionary it will, when the re- 
maining volume is ready, form a complete and 
independent Dictionary of the New Testament. 
Dr. Hastings has once more enlisted the co-opera- 
tion of a very notable band of scholars and writers, 
including Archbishop Bernard, Professor Burkitt, 
Principal Garvie, Professor Kirsopp Lake, Bishop 
Maclean, Professor Moffat, Professor Peake, Dr. 
Plummer, Professor Sanday, Dr. Spooner. Many 
others, hardly less well known, have given their 
help to the undertaking, so that the authoritative 
character of the various articles is fully guaran- 
teed. Among the larger and more important con- 
tributions we mav note that the Uncanonical 
Gospels are allotted 28 pages ; Christ, Christology, 
22 ; the Acts of the Apostles, 14; Atonement, 12 ; 
Eschatology, Ignatius, each 11 ; the Apocryphal 
Acts of the Apostles, the Epistle to the Corinth- 
ians, God, 10 pages each. Each subject included 
has been handled with the complete knowledge, 
clear statement, and undeniable scholarship which 
are always so characteristic of the great works 
of reference for which Dr. Hastings is responsible. 
We can only congratulate the many Biblical and 
theological students, for whose special benefit the 
work has been produced, on this important addi- 
tion to the list of standard authorities which is 
every year reflecting new credit on the theological 
and Biblical scholarship of English students who 
in the past have perhaps hardly put forth their 
full strength. 

Messrs. Charles Thurman & Sons, the well- 
known booksellers of English Street, Carlisle, 
send us a very artistically designed account of the 
various activities of their firm to commemorate 
their centenary, as the business was established in 
1816, the year after Waterloo. They draw 
attention to the fact that they are the largest firm 
of letterpress printers, manufacturing stationers, 
account book makers, and booksellers between 
Liverpool and Glasgow. 

The Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institu- 
tion to June 30th, 1914, has just reached us. It is, 
as usual, rather late, but it shows that the activities 
of the Institution during the year under review 
have been well maintained. One of the sections 
which has special interest and importance at the 
present moment is the report of the Langley 
Aerodynamical Laboratory, which states that the 
tests made so far have shown that “ the late 
Secretary Langley had succeeded in building the 
first aeroplane capable of sustained free flight with 
a man.” Papers on the subject by A. F. Zahm 
and Orville Wright are given in the appendix, and 
will, no doubt, prove of great interest to all con- 
cerned in aeronautical matters. 

Mr. T. Fisher Unwin has just added to his 
Popular Series of Shilling Novels Miss Ethel M. 
Dell’s successful storv, ‘‘The Knave of Dia- 

Messrs. T. Nelson & Sons, Ltd., have just pub- 
lished the tenth volume of Mr. John Buchan’s 
very successful “ History of the War,” which 
deals with “The Russian Stand and the Septem- 
ber Offensive in the West.” Appendices are given 
dealing with the operations at Anzac and Suvla, 
the Battle of Champagne, and the Advance at Loos. 
They have also added to their Sevenpenny Copy- 
right Novels “ The House of Defence,” by Mr. 
G. F. Benson; to their Shilling Library “The 
Story of the Great Armada,” by John Richard 
Hale; to “The Collection Nelson” “Mademoiselle 
de la Seigli^re par Jules Sandeau ” ; “ Genevieve, 
Histoire d’une Servante par Alphonse de Lamar- 
tine, de l’Acad6mie franq:aise.” 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., have just issued a 
new story by Theodore Goodridge Roberts, author 
of that very successful tale “ Love on Smoky 
River” and other popular books. The Rocky 
River district, in which the scene is laid, is of 
course in America, and the tale is American 
throughout. Dan Mitchell, a young rancher, and 
his Indian companion, Sol Gabe, find a man left 
to die with his tongue cut out and his right hand 
cut off. He turns out to be one Smith, an old 
scoundrel who has ruined many widows and 
orphans, and also a rich young gentleman named 
Percy Grey. In revenge Grey had hired a doctor 
to maim his enemy, and also tries to ruin Smith’s 
son and daughter. How these two are saved, and 
how the tale ends, we must leave the reader to 
discover. We need only say that it is full of ex- 
citing and absorbing interest throughout, and in 
many respects a decided improvement on the 
author’s previous efforts. The same publishers 
have also sent us a very curious and mysterious 
tale entitled “The Romance of the Princess 
Arnult ” by an anonymous writer. It is described 
as “ An Intimate Personal Record of a Royal 
Family,” and it answers very accurately to the 
description. The many scenes and incidents are 
very realistically and vividly portrayed. The 
dresses of the ladies and the various equipages and 
appointments, the palace surroundings and the 
many details will make the book particularly 
attractive to many readers. All who like to hear 
about royalty and royalties will find in it a curious 
fascination, and in its own way the story is cer- 
tainly quite outside the ordi lary run. It is one 
which will be eagerly read, and when once read 
will not be easily forgotten. 

Messrs. Smith, Elder & Co. have nearly ready 
“Recollections of an Admiral’s Wife,” by Lady 
Poore; “ Robertson of Brighton, 1816-1853,” by 
Very Rev. Hensley Henson, Dean of Durham; 
“ Red Screes: a Romance of Lakeland,” by Cecil 

Messrs. Thomas Nelson & Sons, Ltd., announce 
that they will issue immediately a shilling hand- 
book entitled “ Ju-Jitsu Self-Defence,” by Mr. 
W. Bruce Sutherland, an expert in physical 
training. 1 he book describes 56 ju-jitsu and 
other secret holds, throws and locks, illustrated 
by over 100 photographs. The special constable, 
for whom this manual is chiefly designed, will be 
enabled bv its aid speedily to acquire a power of 
self-defence which will greatly increase his self- 
confidence, and his efficiency in dealing with un- 
ruly individuals in the course of his duties. 

THE BOOKSELLER. March, 1916 

The Commercial Press, Ltd., of Shanghai, 
China, which is now the largest establishment of 
its kind in the East, was founded, so we learn from 
an interesting account in the Inland Printer, 
quoted by the Publishers’ Weekly of New 
York, in a very small way less than twenty years 
ago, as a small job-printing office in an alley way 
at Shanghai. The printing department alone now 
employs some 1,400 persons, with a pay roll of 
^4,000 a month. The editorial department en- 
gages over a hundred scholars, who work at the 
compilation of text books, the translation of prayer 
books, and the editing of magazines, chiefly edu- 
cational, and the salaries amount to £1,600 a 
month. The business was started by Christians 
who had learnt their trade at the Presbyterian 
Mission Press, and to-day the heads of its depart- 
ments are either wholly Christian or of Christian 
sympathies. It largely owes its wonderful develop- 
ment to two factors — the humane and liberal treat- 
ment of its workpeople, which is the direct result 
of the Christian principles of the founders, and the 
adoption of Western education by the Chinese 
authorities. The effects of this last factor are by 
no means as yet fully seen. It is stated that com- 
pulsory education is sure to come in the near 
future, and this will increase the present number 
of students in the schools, which is less than a 
million and a half, to something like forty millions, 
and when this takes place the possibilities of the 
Press will be almost indefinitely extended. The 
bulk of the books now issued are school text-books 
and maps, but novels are also published, and a 
large number of books on politics, for which the 
demand is very rapidly growing. The business has 
some thirty branch offices in various provincial 
towns and cities of China, with over a thousand 
selling agencies all over the world. A considerable 
business is also done in handling the publications 
of all the important firms of Europe and America. 

It is interesting to note the wide expansion during 
recent years of knowledge and education in China 
which is thus evidenced. We may therefore enter- 
tain the most hopeful anticipations of the immense 
possibilities in this direction which the future may 
have in store for the intellectual development of 
China and her many millions of inhabitants. 

Miss Dorothea Kirke’s book on “ Domestic J 
Life in Rumania,” which Mr. John Lane has just j 
published, is sure to find many readers, for 
Rumania is a subject of interest to many English 
readers to-day, and before very long will no doubt 
prove of still greater interest. It is presented in 
the form of letters from Miss Millie Ormonde to 
her cousin. Mr. Edmund Talbot, of Talwood, 
Devonshire. Millie was for some time at 
Bucharest as La Nurse in the family of a 
Rumanian advocate, or barrister as we suppose 
he would be called here. Miss Millie writes with 
a good deal of keen insight and practical observa- 
tion, and she gives her readers a very fair 
impression of the main characteristics of the 
country and the people. The incidents of shop- 
keeping and shopping in Bucharest are curious 
and interesting, and she naturally emphasises the 
defects of ordinary English people as regards 
foreign languages. A visit to Constantinople is 
particularly well worth reading, and the account 
of a ball given in her employer’s house is very 

According to M. Maurice Millioud, Professor of 
Social Science in the University of Lausanne, at 
least one reason for the present war was the fact 
that the^condition of German trade was becoming- 
critical. Commercial treaties were about to 
expire, and their revival on the present highly 
favourable terms could hardly be expected. More- 
over, the wonderful commercial expansion was 
economically unsound, and had only been main- 
tained by unlimited bluff. The day of reckoning 
was clearly at hand, and therefore the traders 
and commercial magnates of Germany were only 
too glad to support the Junkers in the determina- 
tion to force on the war. M. Millioud entitles his 
book “ The Ruling Caste and Frenzied Trade in 
Germany.” Sir Frederick Pollock contributes a 
very appreciative and informing preface, and the 
little volume, which is published by Messrs. 
Constable, deserves to find widespread acceptance. 

Messrs. Constable & Co. have lately published a 
Catalogue of the Pictures and other Works of Art 
in the Collection of Lord St. Oswald at Nostell 
Priory, which has been written by Mr. Maurice 
W. Brockwell. It includes chapters on the history 
of the ancient Priory of Nostell, the house on 
which the brothers Adam worked so long and so 
splendidly, the family records of the Winn family, 
and the formation of the art collection. Only one 
hundred copies have been printed of this Royal 
Quarto Book, which is amply illustrated. 

Mr. Frank Hollings, of Great Turnstile, 
Holborn, sends us a volume of poetry by Mr. 
Pelham Webb, entitled ‘‘ Wandering Fires.” The 
writer has already had some small success in 
poetry, as a volume of “ Sonnets ” he published 
some two or three years since is now out of print. 
The contents of his new volume certainly possess 
some poetic qualities, and some of the pieces are 
occasionally effective. As a sample of the rest we 
may quote a few lines on “ The Anemone ” : 

“ An anemone I see, 

And methinks it says to me : 

‘Any money? any money? 

Put away your parsimony.’ 

So I put my care away, 

For the pretty flower I pay, 

Then I take it home to be 
Friend of my frugality.” 

We have received from the Anglo-Egyptian 
Supply Association of Alexandria a useful little 
book entitled “ Arabic Without a Teacher,” by 
A. K. Khoori. It has been specially prepared for 
the soldiers now in Egypt, and has been received 
by them with much favour. A second edition is 
already in preparation. 

Messrs. Little, Brown & Co. announce a third 
printing, before publication, of Mr. Peter Clark 
Macfarlane’s new novel, “ Held to Answer.” 
The author, who has already scored one success 
with his previous book, “ Those Who Have Come 
Back,” has had a varied and adventurous career. 
He has at different times been : a railroad clerk, 
an actor in a travelling company, a book can- 
vasser, a mission preacher, the general secretary 
of the Men’s Brotherhood of the Disciples of 
Christ, and latterly a writer for magazines. 
During the past year he has lived at San Fran- 
cisco, and has devoted all his time and energies 
to the writing of his novel, and he is now 
engaged on its successor. 



March, 1916 

Messrs. T. Werner Laurie, Ltd., have just 
published a very helpful and suggestive shilling 
brochure, “ How to Win the War: The Financial 
Solution,” by Thomas Farrow and W. Walter 
Crotch Its main purpose is “to popularise a 
scheme which was laid by Mr. Thomas Farrow 
before the Chancellor of the Exchequer last May 
to establish a Home Savings Bank and a Motor - 
car Bank — a scheme which would, it is claimed, 
take the bank into the home, bring thrift to the 
very doors of the people, so that they would have 
no alternative but to respond.” The idea is mainly 
that to which the working man is already very 
largely accustomed, that of 11 paying in ” regularly 
as at present to a Sick Club, a 1 rade L nion, or a 
Co-operative Society. The writers propose that 
a National Thrift Campaign on these lines should 
be inaugurated by a representative meeting at the 
Guildhall, that representative local committees 
should be formed everywhere, and that the local 
post office shall be used for the deposit of the 
moneys collected. It is an ingenious, and 
apparently a very practicable, scheme, which well 
deserves the most careful attention of everyone 
who wishes England to win the war. bor, as Mr. 
Farrow urges in the early chapters, the war will 
probably be won by the combatant which can 
endure the longest financially. Germany, he 
argues, is still a very long way from any real state 
of siege, and in spite of all that is said about her 
failing food supplies he believes her resources in 
food are still very considerable. All these con- 
siderations add to the importance of Mr. Farrow’s 
suggestion, and it may be safely expected that the 
wide circulation which the volume so thoroughly 
deserves to attain may do something to bring the 
proposal within the arena of immediate practical 
accomplishment. Lord Devonport prefixes a 
short commendatory Foreword, which we are glad 
very heartily to endorse. 

The Interests of British Trade in China have, 
since the commencement of the war, been further 
safeguarded by the formation of a new organisa- 
tion, the Shanghai British Chamber of Commerce, 
which issues a Chinese journal and a monthly 
trade report written in English. The journal is 
intended to bring into prominence the undoubted 
pre-eminence and all-embracing scope of British 
manufactures. The first issues contain numerous 
advertisements, and all interested in British trade 
in China should avail themselves of this new 
medium of publicity. Messrs. Norbury, Natzio 
& Co., Billiter Buildings, E.C., have been ap- 
pointed sole advertising agents for Great Britain. 

Messrs. Smith, Elder & Co. will publish at 
once Mrs. Humphry Ward’s new story, ‘‘A 
Great Success,” which has been appearing in 
‘‘The Cornhill Magazine”; “ Jitny and the 
Boys,” by Bennet Copplestone, a young lad’s 
adventures with a motor-car in detecting spies and 
other exciting experiences; “ Content with Flies,” 
by Mary and Jane Findlater, who here describe 
how last summer in Scotland they lived in a 
cottage and ‘‘did for themselves,” experiences 
which will be of interest to many who have 
hitherto thought servants indispensable. They 
also have in the press “ More Minor Horrors,” by 
Dr. A. E. Shipley, a sequel to his “ Minor Horrors 
of War,” of which a third edition has already been 

Messrs. Sampson, Low & Co. will publish very 
shortly ‘‘From Mons to Ypres with French, a 
volume of personal experiences by Mr. F rederic 
Coleman, who has a good many thrilling tales to 
tell. He is an American who has spent ten months 
with the British Expeditionary Force in France 
and Flanders. He tells us that from the begin- 
ning of the war he has believed in the cause of 
l the Allies, and his narrative, if at times rather 
rambling and discursive, is perhaps all the more 
interesting for that reason. The book will 
contain fifty illustrations, and will be very attrac- 
tively produced. An American edition will be 
published, and also a special edition printed in 
England for Canada, which will be supplied there 
by Mr. William Briggs. The story Mr. Coleman 
has to tell is throughout well worth reading, and 
we have no doubt' that the publishers intend to 
score another publishing success. 

American Book Production in 1915 was, accord- 
ing to the Publishers’ Weekly, the smallest 
since 1913, only 9,734 books having been recorded 
in its weekly and monthly lists. I he decline is, 
of course, due to the war, which decreased not 
only the number of importations, but owing to 
the unsettled trade conditions the number of 
books produced in America as well. In 19*4 the 
importations were 2,852, last year only 2,338. 
Books by English authors produced in America 
fell from 595 in 1914 to 464. Only two subjects 
showed any noticeable increase. Books on history 
(including,’ of course, the war) rose from 581 to 
758, and books on business from 229 to 252. 

Messrs. Philipson & Golder, of Chester, send us 
this year’s issue of the “ Chester Diocesan 
Calendar.” It contains the usual information 
and statistics of church work in the diocese, and 
we note that twenty-five of the diocesan clergy are 
serving with the naval and military forces in 
various capacities. 

Messrs. T. Werner Laurie, Ltd., have published 
‘‘ Pootli,” by Ardeshir F. J. Chinoy and Mrs. 
Dinbai A. F. Chinoy, a novel which is in some 
respects probably unique. For it is a story of 
Parsee life in Bombay, written in English by two 
Parsees, who are apparently husband and wife. 
Pootli is the daughter of a wealthy and over-indul- 
gent father, who was born with the golden spoon 
in her mouth, and evidently was accustomed to 
have her own way. Presently she loves a young man, 
who was not blessed with too much good sense, 
and one evening she discovered him philandering 
with another young woman. What happened, and 
how the various complications were satisfactorily 
settled, we will leave our readers to learn for 
themselves. We may, at any rate, very warmly 
congratulate the authors on the success of their 
enterprise, and we may commend the tale to all 
who take an interest in the life and habits of our 
Indian subjects. 

Fry’s Royal Guide to the London Charities 

makes its fifty-second annual appearance. The 
Editor, Mr. John Lane, in his preface, emphasises 
a much needed caution that the charitable public 
should not allow ‘‘The rush of temporary chari- 
ties connected with the war to sweep out of our 
minds those great and permanent institutions upon 
which we shall be glad to fall back in the 
darker days that are coming.” The volume is 
published by Messrs. Chatto & Windus. 



March, 1916 

In “A Merry Banker in the Far East,” which 
Mr. Walter H. Young has just published through 
Mr. John Lane, the author has produced a book 
which will be full of interest and attraction, not 
only to all who are or have been actively engaged 
in banking, but also to all who can enjoy and 
appreciate a lively humorous and entertaining 
autobiography. Mr. Young began his career in 
a London bank, he then went out to Manila, and 
later to Hong Kong. Retiring for a brief spell to 
England he had a short experience of provincial 
banking in Yorkshire, and finally found himself 
manager of the Bank of Tarapaga in Chili, 
founded by the late Colonel North. In all his 
varied experiences Mr. Young maintains his 
merry, cheerful disposition ; he can always see the 
humorous and entertaining side of any incident he 
may mention, and his descriptions of the charac- 
teristic scenes and persons he has met with always 
make very delightful reading. The many photo- 
graphs with which the book is illustrated distinctly 
add to its value and attraction. 

“ K ” as the title of a novel is certainly as short a 
title as can be found, and in this respect, at any rate, 
the new novel by Mary Roberts Rinehart, which 
Messrs. Smith, Elder & Co. are publishing in this 
country, is almost unique. At the same time it is 
an exceedingly interesting story. The scene is a 
street in a poor middle-class quarter of New York. 
A rather mysterious lodger takes a room at Mrs. 
Page’s. He gives the name of K. Le Moine, and 
soon becomes known as “ K. ” Sidney, Mrs. 
Page’s daughter, becomes very friendly with him, 
and he evidently has a feeling for her of something 
more than mere liking. Sidney takes up the work 
of nursing in a hospital, where the chief operator 
is a clever young surgeon named Dr. Max Wilson 
— a man, however, who is rather free in his deal- 
ings with women. However, he fascinates Sidney 
and she accepts him, but at length he fails in the 
usual way and she gives him up. Meanwhile, 
Le Moine, who has been working as a clerk in a 
gas office, turns out to be himself a famous 
surgeon, who because he thinks he has made one 
fatal mistake disappeared. The real culprit 
confesses, Le Moine is cleared, and there is, 
of course, no reason why he should not marry 
Sidney and be happy ever after. The various 
incidents and persons introduced are very skilfully 
handled, and throughout the story has a very 
wonderful charm. Mrs. Rinehart has given us 
some good work already, but her latest novel is 
certainly her best. 

The New Part of “ Book Prices Current,” 

which commences the thirtieth volume, covers the 
sales from April 6th to December 10th, 1915, and 
it runs to over 170 pages. Though the sales in- 
cluded some interesting collections, the library of 
the late Mr. S. R. Crockett, part of the late 
Prof. Bywaters, and books of the late Sir John 
Tenniel, none of these realised any very large 
amounts, except the conclusion of the library of 
the late General Bray ton Ives, sold by the 
American Art Association, the result of which was 
over 87,000 dollars. The library of the late Mr. 
Lothrop Withington, of Newburyport, Mass., 
sold at Sotheby’s, realised over ^1,000, and the 
fourth portion of that of the late Mr. George 
Dunn, also sold at Sotheby’s, over 1,300. 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., have now included in 
their sixpenny series ” The Trainer’s Treasure,” 
one of the most exciting tales that Nat Gould has 
written. The coloured picture on the cover makes 
one eager to commence the tale and read how it 
all turns out. They have also added “ Rancher 
Carteret,” a characteristic novel by that popular 
writer Harold Bindloss, to their shilling series, 
which is rapidly making its way in public favour. 

We have received from the Vir Publishing 
Company, Imperial Arcade, Ludgate Circus, E.C., 
a copy of the fourth edition of a book well known 
in America, ” The Marvels of Our Bodily 
Dwelling,” by Mrs. Mary Wood Allen, M.D., 
with a characteristic Introduction by Dr. 
Sylvanus Stall. The subject is treated under the 
form of an allegory, in which scientific facts are 
not sacrificed to the fiction, but fiction is made 
to serve the facts in such a way as to secure 
their widest dissemination and greatest useful- 
ness. The same publishers send us an attractive 
reprint of “ Gleig’s Wonderful Book Concerning 
the Most Wonderful Book in the World,” by 
the Rev. George Robert Gleig, M.A. The author 
is, perhaps, best known as a former Chaplain- 
General of the Army, and the author of a Life of 
Wellington and other military biographies. The 
present volume was originally written nearly 
a hundred years ago. It naturally takes the 
older views of the Bible and its inspiration, and 
though in the opinion of some it may be thought 
antiquated and out of date, others will welcome 
its re-issue, and will no doubt read with interest 
the Introduction which Dr. Sylvanus Stall has 

Mr. Edward V. Edsall in his suggestive book, 
“ The Coming Scrap of Paper,” just published 
by Messrs. George Allen & Unwin, argues that 
the gold standard on which our whole commercial 
and financial system is based is no longer main- 
tainable. and will have to be abandoned. He 
has, of course, no trouble in showing from the 
financial crisis of 1914 “ that the bulk of our 
everyday transactions are conducted in a paper 
currency which is not backed by gold, in spite of 
the theory that it is.” He further points out 
that after the war our rivalry with Germany under 
the present gold currency system would be 
dangerous to our trade, and that our only safety 
lies in giving up the use of a commodity as 
currency and “ adopting in its place a national 
valueless currency.” Thus Great Britain would 
“ ensure to herself an impregnable economic posi- 
tion both nationally and internationally . . . for 
a valueless currency would establish within her 
own borders true economic liberty.” How far 
these suggestions may be safely adopted is a 
matter for our financial experts to decide : we can 
only say that Mr. Edsall puts his views with 
force and ability, and that by their very boldness 
they deserve very attentive consideration. 

“ Practical Poultry Farming Popularly 
Described,” by J. Stephen Hicks, Vice-President 
of the Poultry Club, is a useful shilling handbook 
issued by the Bazaar, Exchange Mart. It 
is a helpful practical little book, and the advice 
cfiven is evidently based upon actual experience. 
It wisely suggests that the practical poultry 
farmer should also consider some side lines, so 
that he may not always have all his eggs in one

Messrs. T’. Werner Laurie, Ltd., have added to 
their popular series of shilling' reprints Mrs. 
Havelock Ellis’s successful story, “ Kits \\ oman : 
A Cornish Idyll.” In its new and cheaper form 
it will no doubt find a still wider circle of delighted 
readers. The same publishers have also issued a 
characteristic appreciation of the German Crown 
Prince, by Mr. T. W. H. Crosland, under the title 
“The Soul of a Crown Prince.” The author 
emphasises the hereditary strain of insanity in the 
Hohenzollern family, and concludes his survey by 
saying that the Crown Prince stands before the 
world as a losel, a blackguard, a thief, a liar, a 
hater of peace, and a lover of bloodshed. 

Messrs. Morgan & Scott have published a very 
interesting and instructive biography of that well- 
known Indian missionary the late Rev. Thomas 
Walker, of Tinnevelly, who served so long and 
with such remarkable success with the Church 
Missionary Society. The memoir, which has been 
written by Miss Amy Wilson-Carmichael, herself 
for many years an active worker in Indian 
missions, is entitled “Walker of Tinnevelly,” 
and it is more than justified bv the account it gives 
of his remarkable missionary labours. Through- 
out Miss Wilson-Carmichael writes with loving 
sympathy and full knowledge of the special con- 
ditions, and the portrait she has here so 
skilfully drawn, all his many friends in the 
missionary field will at once recognise as full and 
complete. She had the special advantage of 
working under him for some time, and the literary 
capacity she has already shown in previous works 
finds additional illustration. The publishers 
have also issued an attractive volume of addresses 
to children by the Rev. Will Reason, entitled 
“ Stories of the Kingdom.” Mr. Reason is well 
known for the interest he has taken in the younger 
generation, and he now gives us a further proof of 
his skill in presenting Bible subjects to boy and 
girl readers in an effective and attractive fashion. 

The Christian Literature Society for India, 35, 
John Street, Bedford Row, W.C., has just 
published “Readings from Indian History for 
Boys and Girls,” by Ethel R. Sykes. The First 
Part, now issued, covers the period from Vedic 
times to the coming of the English. The main 
intention of the book is to give boys and girls at 
school some idea of what Indians of bygone ages 
actually wrote about the events of their time, from 
the unknown composers of the Vedic Hymns down 
to the great Baber. The author has received 
much help from Lord Sydenham, Sir W. 
Mackworth Young, and many others, and she has 
certainly succeeded to a very marked degree in 
the main purpose of her book. It will no doubt 
find warm approval in Indian schools, and the 
parts which are to follow are sure to be antici- 
pated with very lively interest. 

Messrs. Jack announce six new volumes in the 
People’s Books Series. These include “India: 
A Nation,” by Mrs. Annie Besant ; “Browning,” 
by Professor Skemp ; “Keats,” by Edward 
Thomas; “The Roman Civilization,” by A. F. 
Giles, M.A., and other subjects. 

Messrs. T. Fisher Unwin, Ltd., have published 
“ Instincts of the Herd in Peace and War,” by 
Mr. W. Trotter, a new book on a psychological 
subject which is sure to arouse a good deal of 
interest and attention. 

The Year’s Art, 1916, published by Messrs. 
Hutchinson & Co., again makes its customary ap- 
pearance, and the Editor, Mr. A. C. R. Carter,, 
is fortunately able to say that at first sight this 
issue does not differ in form and appearance from 
its predecessors. It is only a detailed examination 
that can discover the trace of war. Emphasis is 
rightly laid on the willing service which artists 
have given in this national crisis at exhibitions to 
help war charities, or the famous Red Cross sale 
at Christie’s, while the gifts of our leading artists 
to the Luxembourg are not overlooked. The latest 
official returns connected with the proceedings of 
the national art institutions, and of the numerous 
public galleries, art societies, and associations 
throughout the country are given, and all the 
valuable information and statistics customarily 
supplied will generally be found in the usual place. 
As an authoritative book of reference the annual 
makes itself every year more and more indis- 
pensable, and Mr. Carter may be very heartily 
congratulated on the efficient way in which he has 
again performed his extremely useful task. 

“ War Letters of an American Woman,” by 

Marie Van Voorst, just published by Mr.- 
John Lane, mainly deals with the first year of 
the war as experienced by an American visitor 
to Paris. Miss Van Voorst certainly has the 
faculty of writing letters, of selecting the most 
effective incidents or points of view, and of 
interesting her correspondent in what she has to 
say. A good deal of the book is taken up by the 
admirable hospital work done by the American 
Ambulance at Neuilly, of which Mrs. Vanderbilt 
was one of the leading spirits, and the general 
description and presentation of life and work at 
Paris during those dreadful days is very realistic 
and forceful. The author brings out very clearly 
the wonderful spirit of the French people, their 
love, courage, devotion, their patience in terrible 
sufferings, their charity, their tenderness, the 
glory of their patriotism, their love of home and 
country and of “all which makes the foundation 
of the human race enduring.” 

We have received from New York “ The 
American Annual of Photography, 1916.” Owing 
to the war, it is largely confined to American 
workers, and the Editor states in his preface that 
while the war in some sections has stimulated the 
photographic, industry, the general effect has been 
very demoralising, due to the present stagnation 
of business and the extremely high prices for 
photographic chemicals and other materials 
manufactured abroad. In spite of all difficulties 
the Editor has been able to produce an excellent 
volume. The various technical papers are helpful 
and suggestive, and many of the illustrative repro- 
ductions reach a very high level of artistic merit. 

Mr. Heinemann has published a very effective 
and impressive pamphlet entitled “The Destruc- 
tion of Belgium, Germany’s Confession and Avoid- 
ance,” by E. Grimwood Mears, one of the joint 
secretaries to the Committee on Alleged German 
Outrages. It is intended as a reply to the German 
W hite Book on the Conduct of the German Troops 
in Belgium, and a more conclusive and damning 
answer can hardly be conceived. It proves up to 
the hilt the charges against the Germans, and 
shows beyond any doubt that the whole of their 
excuses only add to their guilt and condemnation. 



March, 1916 

Mr. William I.e Queux has well been called “the | 
Master of Mystery,” and his latest story, “The 
Broken Thread,” just published by Messrs. Ward, 
Lock & Co., is a further illustration of his remark- 
able skill in this kind of romance. Raife Rem- 
ington, the eldest son of a Kentish baronet, sud- 
denly falls in love with a beautiful girl he sees 
on the promenade at Southport. 1 he same day 
his father is mysteriously murdered at his home, 
Aldborough Park, near 1 unbridge Wells. Later 
on there is an attempted burglary at Aldborough 
Park, and the beautiful young lady, Gilda Tem- 
pest, is caught in the act. I hese two incidents 
sufficiently indicate the exciting character of the 
story, and the reader learns with breathless ex- 
pectation that Gilda is only the unwilling tool of 
a scoundrelly uncle, one Dr. Malsano, who was 
throughout following up a vendetta between him 
and Sir Raife’s father. It would hardly be fair 
to give away the secret, or to disclose the solu- 
tion. The reader who begins the tale will in- 
fallibly read on in haste to the end, and will then 
quite agree with us that in mystery, excitement, 
and sensational romances Mr. Le Queux’s latest 
story is one of his very best. 

Princess Catherine Radziwill has just given us 
a new study of continental court life in her new 
book “ The Austrian Court from Within,” which 
Messrs. Cassell & Co. have just published. Those 
who have read her former volumes, and particu- 
larly “The Royal Marriage Market of Europe,’’ 
will, of course, expect a good deal of curious and 
interesting reading, more particularly as the 
Princess, by virtue of her rank, has had the entry 
to the Austrian Court, and therefore knows it 
intimately. She naturally finds a good deal of 
interesting material in the Emperor Francis 
Joseph, of whom she has formed a very bad 
opinion, and he is in her view a selfish, unfeeling - , 
and weakly opinionated personage. Frau Catherine 
Schratt, his companion, exerts a good deal of 
quiet influence over him, and might no doubt if 
she wished be his morganatic wife. She prefers, 
however, to keep herself in the background, and 
partly no doubt for that reason, her real power is 
all the greater. The tragic history of the late 
Empress Elizabeth is sympathetically described, 
and we have, of course, a new version of the 
Meyerling catastrophe. The Austrian politicians 
and ministers, according to the Princess, are a 
very feeble and inefficient group, and she empha- 
sises the fact that though Germany is clearly using 
the Dual Empire for her own selfish ends, the so- 
called statesmen of Austria and Hungary have 
quite failed to realise this very evident and signifi- 
cant fact. A strong sympathiser with the Allies, 
she anticipates the defeat of the Central Empires, 
and she argues that “the dismemberment of Austria 
is as necessary as the destruction of Prussian 
militarism.” It is time, she adds, that “this tool 
in the hands of her powerful German neighbour 
should be denied the possibility of serving as an 
excuse for the latter’s misdeeds.” She can only 
be rendered harmless “by reducing her to the 
condition of a secondary state,” and thus expiate 
the want of moral backbone which has been one 
of her worst defects. 

The Year Book Press has just issued “ Songs 
of the Grey Country,” by Joan Rundall. 

In “The Epic of Dixmude ” the writer, a 

Frenchman, describes in vigorous and forceful 
fashion the marvellous exploits of the French 
Marines, who successfully held back, with far in- 
ferior forces, the German advance at Dixmude 
during the fateful days of October 16th to Novem- 
ber 10th, at the beginning of the war. It was 
almost a forlorn hope. The odds were six to one, 
and the district of the Yser, with its fresh waters, 
was very difficult for sailors to do their best. How- 
ever, they made their history, and the tale of their 
heroic deeds may well be called an epic. M. Charles 
Le Goffic, the author, has told his tale with re- 
markable effectiveness and graphic power, and he 
has drawn his materials from the official reports 
and from personal reminiscences, all of which have 
been skilfully put together in a piece of history 
that is certain to live. The English translation, 
by Miss Florence Simmonds, is admirable, and the 
publisher, Mr. Heinemann, may be heartily con- 
gratulated on the very excellent book he has now 
placed before the English-reading public. 

The Religious Tract Society are re-issuing in an 
improved form that standard work, “ Young’s 
Analytical Concordance to the Bible,” in three 
editions. “ Submarine U 93,” by Captain 
Charles Gilson, has been added to the “ Boys’ 
Library of Adventure and Heroism,” and two 
volumes, “ Men of Grit ” and “ Men of Faith and 
Daring,” both edited by W. Grinton Berry, M. A., 
to the “Brave Deeds” series. In the “Girls’ 
Library ” “ The Children of Everslev Grange,” bv 
Esther E. Enock, lias now been included. 

Messrs. W. & A. K. Johnston have just pub- 
lished a useful “War Map of the Middle East, 
illustrating the Campaigns in Mesopotamia, Persia 
and the Caucasus.” It gives the principal railways 
and much detail. It includes the area from 
Salonica and Belgrade in the West, to Meshed 
and Kerman (Persia) in the East, from the North 
of the Caspian Sea to Bushire, Persia, and Cairo 
on the South. Now that so much interest is 
centred in these theatres of war the map will be 
of more than usual help and assistance, and is 
sure to find a wide circulation. 

Messrs. Cecil Palmer & Hayward have published 
“ The Balkans in Caricature,” edited by T. D. 
Hadjich, a contributor to the Serbian Royal 
Academy of Science. The cartoons have been 
selected from a wide area, America, Canada, 
Holland, Turkey, Italy, Poland, Germany, 

Russia, France, and England, and the letterpress 
is given in five languages, English, French, 
Italian, Spanish, and Dutch. The cartoons 
mostly refer to Balkan incidents before the present 
war, but they strongly emphasise the uncertain 
and complicated position of politics in that very 
disturbed quarter. The brochure is full of 

interest, and is very well worth the shilling at 
which it is published. 

Messrs. Philip & Son publish a useful “ Ten 
Sheet Road Map of England and Wales,” the 
“ R.A.C. Official Touring Motor Map,” and the 
| “ R.A.C. London — In and Out,” and the “ Mile- 
stone Motor Map.” 

Messrs. C. A. Pearson, Ltd., will issue at a 
popular price a new romance by Mr. W. Le 
Queux, entitled “The Spy Hunter”; “Carry On,” 
a first book of naval sketches by “ Taffrail,” r> 
new writer.

T he annual general meeting of 

the Booksellers’ Provident Institution was 
held as usual in Stationers’ Hall on Friday 
evening last, March 3rd. Mr. C. J. Longman, 
the President, was in the chair, and there was a 
large attendance of members and friends. 

The notice calling the meeting and the minutes 
of the last annual general meeting having been 
taken as read, The President said : — 

Ladies and Gentlemen, it falls to my duty again to 
move “ That the Report of the Board of Directors for 
the year 1915 be adopted.” It has been my custom, 
of late years, to run somewhat rapidly through the 
various points mentioned in the Report and Accounts, 
and generally to compare the different items with the 
corresponding items in the Report and Accounts of the 
previous year. It is useful, no doubt, to observe in 
which way we are progressing. I think, however, 
that this year it will, perhaps, be unnecessary that 1 
should follow this course exactly. The figures in your 
Accounts this year correspond, on the whole, very 
closely with those of the previous year. There are no 
salient differences to notice, either in regard to the 
receipts or the expenditure. The fact is that the busi- 
ness of the Institution this year has gone very quietly 
along, much in the ordinary way. The storm and the 
stress which has been raging outside our walls here 
and outside this country have not been reflected in 
the proceedings of your Institution. On the con- 
trary, I think it has tended rather to make our pro- 
ceedings quieter than usual. The patriotism of the 
members of the bookselling trade at once led large 
numbers of them to enlist for service with the Colours. 
Owing to that there has been no lack of employment 
in the bookselling trade, and the consequence of that 
is that we have not had any great pressure upon your 
funds in the way of fresh applications for relief. Of 
oourse there has been a certain number of new cases, 
and there has been a considerable number of cases on 
the books, some of which have been on the books for 
a considerable time, who have needed assistance. To 
them the Institution has been, as it always is, a sort 
of harbour of refuge. Those who needed help, and 
who have joined the Institution, have been able to 
come to it with the certainty of getting that which 
they needed. That quietness which undoubtedlv has 
fallen, to some extent, on the Institution this year 
has, I think, been reflected in the proceedings of your 
Board of Directors. We have not had any great 
problems to solve as we have had in the last few years. 

T think that the work of your Directors is, perhaps, 
the pleasantest and happiest work that most of us, 
who spend our working lives in the neighbourhood of 
Paternoster Row, have to do. It is true that it comes 
in the evening, after a long and hard day’s work ; 
but, at the same time, the agreeable and stately sur- 
roundings in our room upstairs where we meet — which 
we owe to the hospitality of the Stationers’ Company 
— undoubtedlv eases the strain of the work ; and I 
think that the certainty, which we all of us feel, that 
we are here on a mission about which there can be 
no doubt whatever, that the result of our work is 
undoubtedly to help those who need that help — tha.t 
certainty has its effect upon us, and makes an addi- 
tional hour's work, after a long day, a pleasure rather 
than a toil. (Applause.) 

Instead of comparing your receipts and expenditure 
with those of the previous year, I thought it might 
be worth while to occupy a few minutes of your time 
by going a little further afield. Your meeting is here, 

and Lhese Annual Reports are, of course, mile-stones 
marking the progress of this Institution from the time, 
now somewhat distant, nearly 80 years ago, when your 
forefathers founded the Institution. It is by taking- 
note of these mile-stones on the road that we see where 
we -are progressing, whether we are going in the direc- 
tion which was intended by the founders or whether 
we are retrogressing. When you are taking a walk 
along a road, mile after mile, each successive mile 
does not bring you suddenly into any fresh country; 
but if you look back five miles, or 10 or 15 miles, 
you then see the difference in the surroundings you 
are in compared with those when you started out in 
the morning. So I thought we might, just for a 
moment, look back from this year, 1916, dealing with 
the Report for 1915 in the first place, 10 years back 
to 1905, and then a little further back to 1899. There 
are certain differences which I think will be worth 
noting, and from which we may, perhaps, draw some 
slight indication of the course which we should do 
well to follow in the future. 

First of all, in regard to your income. The total 
income this year has been £(2,013. If we go back 
10 years, to 1905, we find that the income was then 
£( 2,208 , some £(200 more. If we go back another 
six years, to 1899, we find that the income v-as .£(1,441 
— £(800 less than 1905, and £(600 less than this year. 
It is worth while to look a little further into the causes 
of that. There are two main sources of income, one, 
subscriptions of members and donations from the trade, 
-and the other is interest on investments. Last year, 
1915, we received in subscriptions and donations £(674. 
In 1905 we received £,'1,212. In 1899 we received 
£(519. Those figures are a little remarkable. We have 
this year received about £(150 more than we did 16 
years- ago, but very little more than half what we 
did 10 years ago. There is an explanation of that 
which I daresay some of you at once know. At any 
rate, some of those around me, your Directors, will 
remember. In the year 1903 a great effort was made 
to revive interest in this Institution. It had been for 
some time failing, and the result of that effort was 
that in the year 1903, 12 1 new members joined, rais- 
ing the subscription list from £(220 to over £(1,000. 
In 1905 that effort had not spent itself. We were still 
receiving a considerable amount in subscriptions and 
donations. Since then, undoubtedly that effort has 
died away. We are now' back practically in the posi- 
tion we were as regards new members before that 
effort. We are rather better, I think, than was the case 
then ; because then we were losing members. Now, 
for the last year or two, we have been practically mark- 
iner time. But that is the explanation of the great 
difference between the amount received now and 10 
years ago in subscriptions. The other great source 
of income is the interest on your investments. Last 
year, including the amount of Income Tax recovered, 
you received £(1,338 from that source. In 1905 you 
received £995. In 1899 you received £(922. That 
shows that under that head there was very little 
difference between 1899 and 1905, while in the last 
10 years we have increased our income from that 
source, very considerably — over £(300. This, of course, 
is a very satisfactory thing, and it is due to two causes. 
One cause is that we have been able to put by everv 
year money which has been invested, and the other 
cause is that owing to the careful watching and chang- 
ing of your investments, which is due to your Board 
of Directors and to the Trustees, the rate of interest 
obtained on those investments has increased very con- 
siderably. The consequence is that we are now in 



March, 1916 

possession of a better income from investments than 
ever has been the case in the history of the Institution. 

If we turn to the expenditure during those years, the 
difference is not very marked. Still there are some 
points of interest. We spent on assistance, temporary 
and permanent, last year, ^1,251. In 1905 practically 
the same — ^1,230. In 1899 we spent ^1,325, about 
_£ioo more. Well, Gentlemen, 1899 was not the high- 
water mark in the matter of expenditure. The year 
in which we spent most in relieving those members 
of the Institution who needed it was the year 1870, 
like this year of great War. I do not know how far 
the Franco-German War affected trade in this 
counfry. It was before I came into the trade. I sup- 
pose few of us here were in the trade at that date. 
But it is the fact that that was the high-water mark 
in expenditure. We spent no less than ^1,876 in 
relief in that year. I think, probably, the War had 
not a great deal to do with it. I think that, because, 
although it is a fact that in 1870 the amount jumped 
up rather suddenly, yet for three or four years about 
then, and succeeding it, the amount was very high. 
I rather attribute it to the fact that those members, 
the large number of members, joined, in 1837, as 
young men, when the Institution was founded. Many 
of those, of course, were still members in 1870, but 
they were getting old ; and I think that they were 
beginning to come, in increasing numbers, on the 
funds of the Institution. In 1903, as I have told you, 
we had another considerable influx of members ; not 
so great, of course, as when the Institution was 
originally founded, but still a considerable influx, and 
those again were largely young men. I do not think 
that many of those have come upon our funds. It 
may be that we shall feel the strain of that rather 
later; and, therefore, it is necessary for us to bear 
this in mind, and to be prudent in the way of husband- 
ing our resources and investing money whenever we 
get a chance to do so. 

One other point I should like to compare, and that is 
the expenses of management, which, in an Institution 
of this kind, is, of course, a very important matter. 
It is the duty of your Directors to see that these do 
not run too high. I think the record is a good one. 
In 1899 the expenses of management were £ 165 , being 
rxj, per cent, of your total income. In 1905 the 
expenses had increased to £ 281 . But then you will 
remember there were a considerably increased number 
of members, and the income had considerably in- 
creased. Nevertheless, the ratio had increased a little 
from 115 per cent, to 12^ per cent, of the income. 
That, in itself, is not a very heavy rate, considering 
the amount of work that is done in the office. Last 
year, 1915, the amount spent was £ 220 . That is the 
lowest of the three years that I have had under view 
in the matter of percentage. It is just under 11 per 
cent, of your income. (Applause.) I think that you 
need not complain about that. 

I thought those figures might be worth putting 
before you, and the conclusion I draw from them, 
which, I think, may affect our future conduct, is this. 
Undoubtedly we are getting a little too quiet. We 
are getting a little bit stagnant. The very consider- 
able effort which was made 12 years ago was exceed- 
ingly useful and successful. I do not think, at the 
present time, during the progress of this War, that 
it would be wise or useful to make another such effort; 
but I do think that if we are to continue this Institu- 
tion in its present state of usefulness and great pros- 
perity, that as soon as normal times return it will be 
the duty of those of your Board of Directors at the 
time to see what they can do to make a further effort, 
in order that the Institution may get fresh members, 
and may get that position in the trade which, I think, 
it has never yet attained, when you consider its great 
usefulness and also the splendid endowment which 
it possesses. 

We have, during the last year or so, welcomed rather 
a large number of new hands into the trade. Those 

who have gone to the Front, those who have joined the 
Colours and are in training at home have left gaps 
behind. Those gaps have not been entirely filled up. 
Many of us are working double time, but still a con- 
siderable number of fresh hands have come in, young 
fellows under military age and young ladies. Many 
of them, indeed, most of them, have not been long 
enough in the trade to qualify for membership, but 
many of them will qualify in the course of the next 
year, and I quite hope that a very considerable number 
of those will think it worth their while to join your 
Institution. (Applause.) I now ask Mr. Darton to 
second the adoption of the Report. 

Mr. J. W. Darton : Mr. Chairman, Ladies and 
Gentlemen, I am sure it must be a great pleasure to 
you all here present to hear our Chairman’s capital 
summary and his Report that he gives us at each of 
these meetings. He has so exhausted the subject that 
you will excuse me if I do not give you many figures, 
but simply second the resolution. But there is one 
point that has occurred to me that I think he has 
missed; but he has not missed the result, and that is 
this : that your capital is less than it was last year. 
Do not be alarmed. There is nothing in that. It is 
simply this : that all your investments are taken at 
the market value, consequently everything is depressed, 
and they must be put down lower than they were ; 
but your income from it is greater — greater by £81 ; 
and next year it will be ^90 from your investments. 
Of course we have a smaller amount received from 
annual life members and subscribers, but that, I think 
we may hope, will be revived when the War is over. 
All your investments are in gilt-edged securities, and 
I can assure you, you can all go home to-night and 
have a quiet, happy sleep, because they are as safe 
as anything can possibly be. The Resolution I have 
to second is for the adoption of the Report of the 
Board of Directors for the year 1915. 

The President : I think, perhaps, before you put 
the Resolution we must ask if any lady or gentleman 
has anything to say, because this is the opportunity of 
criticising the conduct of the Board. If there is no 
criticism, I will put the Resolution. Those in favour 
of it kindly hold up their hands. 

The motion was then carried unanimously. 

Mr. J. R. Blade : Mr. President, Ladies and Gentle- 
men, it is my duty and pleasure to move “ That the 
persons who have been nominated for the offices of 
President, Vice-Presidents, Trustees, Treasurer, and 
Auditors be hereby taken to be duly elected as Officers 
of the Institution.” I might leave that Resolution 
there as I have read it, but I feel that I should be 
somewhat neglectful if I were so to do. I therefore 
must trespass on your time, for a few minutes, to 
speak just a word or two with reference to the sub- 
ject of the Resolution. Our honoured President, in 
the course of his remarks, said that it was a pleasure 
to attend and be at the Board Meetings. The condi- 
tions and circumstances he quoted, but he forgot one 
thing, and that was that we may always be pretty 
certain of having the pleasure of meeting him — 
(Applause) — for he almost never misses showing him- 
self and being in the Presidential Chair, from which, 
with his great knowledge of the Institution, and all 
the ramifications thereof, his mature wisdom, careful 
guidance and wise counsel, we are enabled to transact 
the business of the Institution in what, I believe, is 
regarded by all as a satisfactory manner. I can vouch, 
from personal knowledge, that it is satisfactory to a 
great many. I refer to those who have been less 
fortunate than some, and have had to make applica- 
tion for assistance. In the course of my duties, in 
connection with the Relief Committee, I have visited 
them at their homes. I have always been welcomed. 
I have always found there expressions of great gratifi- 
cation and satisfaction at what the Institution does 
for them, and that they are very thankful that they, 
or their forbears, were members of the said Institution. 

With reference to our Vice-Presidents, they are all 
gentlemen well known. If we do not see so much of 

March, 1916

them, as we do of our worthy President, at the 
Directors’ Meetings, we know that we can rely on 
them at any time for their valued advice and assist- 
ance when needed. Our Trustees, one of whom you 
have heard this evening, are men of repute ; and, as 
you have been told, they look after our interests in a 
manner which is worthy of the Institution of which 
they are part. Our dear old friend, Mr. Green, we 
have not had the pleasure of seeing lately, owing, I 
believe, to physical infirmities; but we know that he 
is a man in whom we can take the utmost pride, 
and feel that the interests of the Institution are safe 
in his hands. (Hear, hear.) 

I now come to the next question of the Auditors. 
You will notice that it has been necessary to nominate 
a fresh Auditor, Mr. Harold Shaylor, known, probably, 
to most of us, if not all. I have had the pleasure of 
knowing his father 48 years. I have had the pleasure 
of knowing Mr. Harold Shaylor since he first came 
into business, and I feel sure that we shall find in 
him a worthy coadjutor to the other two auditors. 

In moving this Resolution, it brings up matters 
which are of great sorrow and regret, that there should 
have been a cause to elect a fresh Auditor. Our late 
Auditor, Mr. John Harris Miles, you knew, and 
I knew from his first entrance into the business, as 
also his father. We all knew Mr. John Harris Miles; 
that he was a man whom we could look up to with 
confidence in everything that he undertook. You 
know, also that he was in the Army, and that he was 
killed, some while back, at Loos, I believe. I have 
heard, on good authority, what I shall always be proud 
to consider in that I was ever associated with him 
in business. In his fatal charge he was wounded ; 
went back to hospital, had his wound bound up, went 
straight back to his duty and his post, from which, in 
the ordinary course of events, he would have been 
relieved in an hour. That fatal hour did not pass. 
That grim messenger came and claimed him. But 
he died as a man should. He proved himself a brave 
and honourable man. He, as thousands of others 
have done, died in defence of his country — in your 
defence and mine, and we shall always and must .be 
proud of them. 

“ And how can man die better, 

Than facing fearful odds, 

For the ashes of his fathers, 

And the temples of his Gods? ” 

That is what he did. 

Mr. C. A. Ashley : I beg to second the motion. 

The President put the motion to the Meeting and 
the same was carried. He then said : I briefly thank 
you, on behalf of myself and the other Officers, for the 
honour you have done us in electing us to our various 

Mr. W. H. Smith moved “ That the 12 persons 
who have been nominated for the office of Director 
be hereby taken to be duly elected.” This was 
seconded by Mr. H. E. Brown, and on being put to 
the Meeting was carried unanimously. 

Mr. A. D. Power : Ladies and Gentlemen, owing 
to Mr. Murray’s absence, I have been asked to move 
the following Resolution : 

“ That the best thanks of this Meeting be given 
to the President, Mr. Charles James Longman, 
for the great interest that he has constantly mani- 
fested in the Institution; to the Vice-Presidents, 
Honorary Vice-Presidents, and the Trustees for 
their continued support; to the Treasurer for the 
manner in which he has discharged the duties of 
his office ; to the Honorary Medical Officers for 
the valuable advice which they have always been 
ready to give ; to the Honorary Secretary for the 
valuable legal advice given by him when 
requested ; and to the Board of Directors, the 
Auditors, and the Honorary Accountant for the 
able and efficient manner in which they have dis- 
charged their duties during the past year.” 

I hope, if anyone is omitted from that comprehen- 

sive and all-embracing Resolution, thev will forgive 
me; and I think Mr. Longman will be grateful that 
Mr. Murray did not arrive in time to propose this 
Resolution. It has certainly spared him from listening 
to a set speech from me setting forth his praises. I 
think I can take it for granted that we all feel what 
an inestimable debt we owe to him, and I hope he 
will take for granted the gratitude which we all feel 
to him for his great services to this Institution. 
(Applause.) After what Mr. Blade said in his Resolu- 
tion, I do not think it is necessary for me to add very 
much with reference to the other gentlemen included 
in this Resolution. There is just one point which has 
occurred to me which I think I might mention. If you 
will glance down that table of attendances, which was 
sent out with the nomination form about a month ago, 
I think you will be struck by the extraordinarily high 
average which has been maintained by the members 
of the Board at those Committee meetings. I merely 
mention that because one is sometimes apt to under- 
value or to overlook — ’because it is so unostentatious — 
the very valuable work which is done by the rank 
and file of Committees. I have great pleasure in pro- 
posing this Resolution. 

Mr. C. C. Darton : I have great pleasure in second- 
ing the Resolution very sincerely. 

Mr. Power : Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Longman 
cannot very well put this vote to the Meeting. If it is 
your wish to pass it, will you intimate your approval 
in the usual way. 

The motion was carried with acclamation. 

The President : Ladies and Gentlemen, again 1 
must thank you for the kindness with which you have 
passed this Resolution, on behalf of myself and the 
other officers. 

On the motion of Mr. J. W. Harden, seconded by 
Mr. E. G. White, the usual vote of thanks was passed 
to the Worshipful Company of Stationers for the use 
of their Hall. 

“ The Future of the War.” 

Mr. Buchan said : Mr. Longman, Ladies and Gen- 
tlemen, — I am very happy to have the privilege of 
addressing a meeting of members of my own profes- 
sion. The good, old-fashioned word “bookseller” 
covers us all — all our branches. In the eighteenth 
century it was a word for a publisher; and personally I 
w'ould rather be called a bookseller than anything 

When I asked Mr. Longman what I should talk to 
you about to-night, he told me to talk about whatever 
I was most interested in. Well, there are many 
professional subjects I should like to have spoken 
about, on which the War has put a new complexion ; 
but I think what he really meant was, what you were 
most interested in, and of that I think there can be no 
question. The War, with its enormous ramifications 
of problems, and its tremendous issues for ourselves 
and our Nation, dominates all our minds; and so I 
propose to speak to you about it for a little to-night. 
I see that my subject is called “ The Future of the 
War.” That does not mean, ladies and gentlemen, 
that I am going to prophesy. Prophets, you know, on 
the best authority, are without honour in their own 
country, and, as this is a meeting of Booksellers, I 
suppose it is my own country, and I do not want to 
run any risk of dishonour. (Laughter.) But, after 
all, the future of the War means the present. The 
issues of the future are all contained in the immediate 

Now for some months we have been passing 
through a very difficult time. Till a few weeks ago 
you might have called it a period of stagnation. That 
kind of time of drag comes in every great war, after 
the first trial of strength is over, and while the forces 
are collecting their energies for the final struggle. It 
came, you remember, in the American Civil War in 
the spring of 1864. The North were compelled, as we 
have been compelled, to introduce a measure of com- 
pulsory service. Now mark what happened. Three 



March, 1916 

months later came the victories of Gettysburg and 
Vicksburg, and the tide turned. I think that is a 
happy omen for us. We are entering, to my mind, the 
most critical period, and the next three months will, 
I think, see the beginning of the final stage. 

Now I have myself not the slightest fragment of 
doubt as to how that final stage is going to end ; but 
I do not think it will be a very sudden or brilliant end. 
I think we may have a long and desperate struggle 
before we win the only kind of victory that will con- 
tent us, the only kind of victory that will give us 
peace with security and honour. 

At a time like this it is extraordinarily hard for 
most people to keep an even keel. The ordinary man 
does not know from week to week what the exact posi- 
tion of affairs is. He does not know the mind of the 
High Commands. Unless he keeps a tight hold of 
himself he is apt to get fidgety and spend hours of 
needless discomfort. In such a situation the only cure 
for restlessness is to keep constantly before your mind 
the main elements of the problem. If you remember 
what is needed to give victory, and what the assets of 
the Allies are, you will be able to take long views, and 
you will not be dismayed by temporary checks. I am 
going to try and put before you what seem to me the 
main elements which will determine the future of the 
War. I beg you to remember that I have no title 
to call myself a military' expert. 1 am 
merely a civilian who happens to have long made a 
study of military questions, and who, by surprising 
good 1 luck, has managed to see a good deal of the 
recent fighting. 

Now a civilian should speak with all becoming 
modesty, but I fancy a civilian has more right to speak 
about this War than about most wars. For remember, 
ladies and gentlemen, this is a war not of armies, but 
of nations ; and therefore economic and financial ques- 
tions bulk almost as large as naval and military. In 
estimating our strength we must look at all our assets, 
and not merely at those deployed in the field. 

In a war of nations victory will be won by three 
things: (1) Numbers; (2) economic strength; and (3) 
— and perhaps most important — the moral, the fight- 
ing quality of the combatants. 

How do we stand in these respects ? When w'e talk 
of numbers, we do not mean mere numbers, we mean 
trained and disciplined men in the prime of strength, 
with a proper complement of munitions and supplies. 
Now' Germany, remember, began with far greater 
numbers, of better average training, and a far better 
munitionment. She was bound to. She had been 
preparing for the thing for a generation. Since then 
she and her allies have lost colossally. We and our 
Allies have also lost, but we had a bigger reserve of 
population to draw upon, and we have improvised 
armies w'hich have now given us a considerable 
numerical superiority. I am not going to weary you 
with figures ; for no figures, not even official figures, 
approach accuracy. The margin of error is a very 
large one; but allowing for that margin of error, I 
think it is fair to put the situation somewhat in this 
way. On the Western front we outnumber the enemy. 

. . . On the Eastern front Russia has vast reserves ; 
and though, owing to shortage of certain vital kinds 
of munitions she is not able at present to use all her 
reserves in the field, yet even now I think she has a 
reasonable superiority in trained men. On the West 
w'e can supply all the normal wastage of war and 
keep up our field strength. . . Russia can do that, 
and more. Further, she can provide, as soon as 
her munitionment is complete, an army of assault 
to be used w'hen the time comes. 

How does Germany stand? Of first-class new troops 
she has only the classes of 1916 and 1917, perhaps 
600,000 in all, and these she has already begun to use 
at Verdun, and has probably used in the Bukowina. 
She can keep up her field strength only bv using these, 
and by bringing in men who are either too old or too 
feeble for norma! military service. Remember that she 
has to keep an enormous number of troops on lines 

of communication and for transport, and for her pro- 
duction of munitions at home. The result is that all 
her famous regular corps are enormously diluted with 
poor material. 1 shall never forget the difference 
between the Prussian Guards whom we took at Loos 
in September, and the same Prussian Guards after the 
first battle of Ypres. 

Germany is therefore in this position. She can still 
provide good armies of assault, as she is doing to-day 
at Verdun, but if that offensive fails, she cannot 
replace it with anything like the same quality of 

Again, all her normal line of battle has been 
weakened in quality. She can still put up a stubborn 
defensive, but it is behind the shelter of her great 
machine. If that machine is met by an equal or a 
stronger machine, and the issue is decided, as of old, 
by the human factor, then that human factor is not 
equal to the Allies — not nearly equal to the Allies. She 
is not equal in mere quantity, in mere numbers of 
trained and equipped men. 

Now the second element of strength is economic. 
After the War I fancy we shall be inclined to say that 
Germany gambled more upon that than upon any other 
thing. She anticipated — she had always anticipated — - 
some kind of blockade; and therefore she made herself 
self-supporting for the main purposes of war. That is 
to say, she has very few outside debts. Her debts are 
nearly all to her own people, and she can meet these 
with an endless creation of paper-money. So long as 
the German people believe in victory and big indemni- 
ties, so long that Government paper will be willingly 

The Allies are in a completely different case. They 
are free countries open to all the world. Britain 
imports a large part of her food and raw materials 
from abroad, and all the Allies import munitions of 
war. Moreover, Britain is lending her Allies money 
to pay for these imports ; but the money which the 
foreign exporter will take in payment must be his 
own kind of money. We can easily pay all our internal 
debts by War Loan Stock, and by paper currency ; 
but this money is not current say, in America, and the 
American exporter must be paid in money which is 
current in his own country. 

Let me explain the situation by a simple illustration. 
Supposing you have a fortress with an army besieging 
it. The garrison of the fortress does not need to have 
any gold. Assuming its larder is well stocked ; assum- 
ing it can grow potatoes in its castle gardens, and 
there is enough material inside its walls to make all 
the gunpowder it wants, it has no need for money. 
The men do not want to be paid cash ; they believe 
they are going to win, and they are quite satisfied with 
their captain’s notes of hand. But the besieging army 
is in a very different position. It must have plenty of 
money. It must pay for local supplies in the coin 
which the producers will accept. The captain of the 
garrison need not have one brass farthing. Or, to 
put it another way. Bankruptcy means little or 
nothing at the present moment for Germany. In a 
sense she is already bankrupt, and even after victory I 
suppose she would be bankrupt unless a colossal 
indemnity were paid. But bankruptcy does not affect 
her at present. She does not need any credit outside 
her own borders. On the other hand, for the Allies 
bankruptcy would be the end of everything. If our 
credit failed, we should be short of food for our people 
and of most vital munitions of war. So you see the 
importance, ladies and gentlemen, of the economic 
factor. That is why it is so vital to keep our credit 
good abroad. That is why we have to take steps to 
correct the foreign exchanges. That is why the most 
rigid economy is necessary in order to keep down our 
debt to foreign countries. That is a matter on which 
every single man and woman of us can help to win 
the war. I believe most firmly in the rightness and 
necessity of the. recent Military Service Act. but at the 
same time I am bound to sav I have the greatest 
respect for the difficulties which I understand were 

March, 1916 


felt for a time by the President of the Board of Trade 
and the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Success must 
be won in the field, but success cannot be won in the 
field unless you have the equipment for fighting. A 
spearhead, however keen and bright, is useless without 
a sturdy spearshaft behind it. 

The third element is what we call moral — the spirit 
of the fighting man. Germany began the War, as 
you know, with a gigantic bluff. She believed that she 
had all the expert knowledge and all the courage, and 
that she would win an easy victory in the first few 
weeks. That bluff failed. The Allies refused to be 
intimidated, and they met the German spirit of offen- 
sive with that far rarer and more difficult thing, the 
spirit of the active defensive. What I want to point 
out to you is that up till last September the Germans 
have never been tried as the Allies have been tried. 
They have never endured such a searching test of 
manhood as that terrible four months when Russia 
was blasted from position to position by mighty 
artillery, and yet managed to retire with unbroken 
armies. She has never had to endure anything like 
the first battle of Ypres, when the thin Allied line, 
stretched to the last limits of endurance, beat back five 
times its weight of men and ten times its weight of 
guns. Up to last Novemebr she had always played 
the game with the winning cards in her hand, and 
yet, curiously enough, she could not win. The best 
piece of reasoned optimism that I have met was the 
saying of a British non-commissioned officer. He was 
asked what was going to happen. He said, “ Oh, 
we’re going to win all right.” He was asked why. 
He said “ Well, I look a,t it like this. The Germans 
have been trying for eighteen months to win, and they 
can’t; and we have been trying for eighteen months 
to lose, and we can’t. We are bound to win.” 

Now last September Germany had a taste of an 
Allied offensive with a reasonable weight of artillery 
behind it ; and fortifications on which she had spent 
twelve months’ work were too strong to go down 
before the first Allied assault. But one very interesting 
thing happened. Under the Allied attack whole regi- 
ments surrendered. When their defences went, and 
the human factor came into play, they were by no 
means ready for a desperate struggle. 

I remember the men of one regiment of a Silesian 
corps whom we rounded up with comparative ease. 
They were fine, stalwart fellows most of them ; but 
their notion of a defence was not ours. It was not 
that of the Second Royal Scots Fusiliers at Ypres, 
who, you remember, stuck to the trench even when 
they were surrounded. . . . 

Ladies and gentlemen, I want to be very clear about 
this view of German courage. You will not find braver 
men on the face of the globe. There are countless 
instances of individual gallantry, of men who stuck to 
machine-guns under a deadly bombardment, and came 
out of their dug-outs to meet almost single-handed the 
attack of the infantry; but we must distinguish 
between individual and corporate courage. They have 
many heroes, but the stamina of their units, their bat- 
talions and brigades does not seem to me to be equal 
to that of the Allies. That sounds a paradox. We 
should have expected that the German training, which 
overrides the individual, would give a unique tenacity 
to the corporate units. Yet I do not think it is so ; 
and what is more, I think it has never been so. If 
you study the details of the Franco-Prussian War in 
1870, you will find that the amount of what our 
soldiers call “ scrim-shanking ” was colossal. That 
was why the Germans introduced massed formations, 
and they came to the conclusion that fighting in open 
order gave too good a chance to the “ scrim-shanker. ” 

If there is one thing that stands out more than 
another in this war, it is the corporate gallantry of the 
Allied troops. At a time of drag like this, it "is well, 

I think, to remind ourselves of the prowess of our own 
people. Let me give you some instances. First for 


the Russians. You remember last spring, under a 
mighty artillery attack, the Russian Army was driven 
backward in Galicia. There were forty guns on the 
enemy’s side for one of the Russians, and they out- 
numbered them also in men. The Russians fell back, 
and the first reserve brought back was a famous Third 
Caucasian corps. All corps had been depleted in the 
Warsaw fighting, and was down to something like 
12,000 men. The German game at that time was to 
keep off the infantry attack by the mere weight of 
artillery. The Caucasians determined to come to grips, 
and they did come to grips. They lost half their 
strength in doing so. When they came to the push of 
the bayonet, they were 6,000 strong ; but these 6,000 
took 7,000 prisoners, captured 40 guns, and altogether 
accounted for about 10,000 of the enemy. That is the 
fighting quality of Russia. (Applause.) 

Take that amazing retreat, amazing because, as you 
know, the Germans used to drive in sections of the 
front and create a salient between them, and then try 
and cut off the troops in the salient ; and in order to 
retire the troops in the salient without loss, it was 
necessary for the sides to hold at all costs till the point 
got away. That is the most difficult operation of war. 
It was done by the Russians time and again. The 
sides held at all costs till the point had fallen back in 
line, and held against an enemy stronger in numbers 
and ten times as strong in guns. I think that is a 
proof of moral. As the Russian soldier said, “ Our 
only weapon in that fighting was the bare breasts of 
our soldiers.” Yet with that as the only weapon, 
they achieved success. They completed their retreat 
with unbroken armies, and foiled the great German 

What about the French? I had the privilege last 
June of seeing the attack of the French in the Artois. 
An amazing sight ! 

They went into action singing, with sprays of lilac 
and hawthorn stuck in their caps, and in the first big 
battle the Central Brigade went clean through every- 
thing and got to the top of the Vemy Heights, tin- 
place we won last September after heavy fighting. 
That was their fighting, but it was nothing to what 
followed in the desperate series of actions underground 
in the place called the Labyrinth. You cannot imagine 
such a place. The bulwarks are practically above 
ground ; the parapets are practically composed of dead 
Germans, and that cellar fighting required a discipline 
and a moral which is almost unparalleled in this cam- 
paign. The French do not like that kind of fighting; 
they like to fight in the open, and last September in 
Champagne they had the chance. You know what 
happened then. They broke through the first and 
second lines of the Germans ; at one moment got 
through the final line, but they were too few. The 
heavy rain made it impossible to get the guns up, and 
they were held for the time. But I want you to 
realise what that kind of attack, spread over a week, 
means, an attack made bv the same troops. In the 
old days of fighting you could get a regiment to do 
wonders, because they knew that if they finished the 
job in the next two hours they would have victory. It 
would be over. But that heavy fighting in Cham- 
pagne — you dig yourselves in ; prepare for another 
attack, another, and still another. The wheel is end- 
less. It seems to me that the stamina, the manhood 
and the discipline required to face that kind of fighting 
are greater than have ever been demanded before from 
troops in the history of the world. 

What about our own men? Their record is cer- 
tainv not the least. (Applause.) You remember the 
first battle of Ypres, when on the 30th day of October, 
with odds of 5 to x against us, the Germans broke our 
front. At half-past two that afternoon thov carried 
the village of Gillevelt. They were marching straight 
upon Ypres. They had driven a great wedge into 
our front. Orders had been given to fall back. . . , 
and we could not remain there. It meant the 
loss of Calais and the Channel ports, and the begin- 



March, 1916 

ning of a new phase in the war. At half-past two that 
misty afternoon, with the Germans driving straight 
towards Ypres, one British line battalion — not an 
advertised battalion, but one of those sturdy old line 
battalions that have always been the backbone of our 
fighting strength — the 2nd Worcesters — on the left, 
discovered that they still had in them a few ounces 
more of fight. Nobody has yet discovered who gave 
the order. Anyhow, that battalion, assisted by the 
Welsh, attacked, caught the advancing Germans in 
flank, checked them, broke them. They were sup- 
ported; and by 4 o’clock we had retaken Gillevelt, and 
by that evening the line was safe and the German 
attempt failed. (Applause.) 

You remember the second battle of Ypres, when, 
suddenly, on a peaceful April evening came that cloud 
of poison gas which no one knew anything about, and 
broke certain troops, who fled from it as from 
some strange devil. The left wing of the Canadians 
received the full brunt of the gas, and though it was 
strange to them, and horrible, and amazing, they 
never broke. They held — (applause) — and they held on 
for four desperate days till they were relieved. Now 
the stamina that will face an unknown terror, a terror 
that comes suddenly out of the void, but in no man’s 
experience and recollection, that is the greatest of all 
kinds of courage. And let me add that the same 
splendid courage was shown in that same battle by 
those battalions which are not to be surpassed in the 
British Army — I mean the London Territorials. 
(Applause.) A fortnight later came Festubert, when 
you remember we made an attack which won some 
ground, but failed to carry the Aubers Ridge. The 
2nd Scots Guards advanced too far, and one company 
was cut off. That company did not surrender; they 
disappeared from our ken. But two days later we 
advanced beyond where we had left them, and we 
found these men dead, lying in a circle ; not one had 
given in, and round them were swathes of the enemy- 
dead. That is the kind of courage that belongs to the 
days of the Vikings. 

I need not remind you of Gallipoli, of the amazing 
work of our 29th Division, of the Australians, such as 
that of taking Long Pine, where six V.C.’s were 
earned in a quarter of an hour. Or the wonderful 
performance of the Gloucesters, who lost every 
officer, and yet went on fighting from noon till four, 
and on in the night, without a single officer. And you 
remember the battle of Loos, the charge of the 44th 
Brigade, when the Highland Brigade went clean 
through for four miles, through all the enemy’s 
entrenchments, pierced the position ; and. . . 
might have broken the German front ; and in 
that battle not the least fine episode was, once 
again, that of our London Territorials, who 
showed not only gallantry — you may find gallantry in 
many battalions that lack other qualities — but showed 
a discipline equal to the Guards’, and an intelligence, 
and individual initiative and reliance which are beyond 
praise. Why, as you know, the 19th London St. Pan- 
eras lost practically all their officers in the advance ; 
but so perfectly had the plan been co-ordinated that 
they finished a difficult turning movement with abso- 
lute precision. 

When one thinks of Loos one is ashamed of our 
“croakers ”; one realises that the manhood of Britain 
never shone more brightly than it did to-day. 

I have been speaking about the military question 
only. I believe that, so far as concerns the military 
side, the Allies have the decision in their hands. By 
that I mean that they have the cards to win the game 
if they play them rightly. 

Now what does victory mean? It means simply to 
beat the main German armies in the field. It is not 
necessary to advance much further than at present. It 
is certainly not necessary to get inside the frontiers 
of Germany. The final blow may be struck many 
hundreds of miles from the German borders, and be 
quite as destructive as if it had been delivered in 

Prussia itself. If we defeat the main German armies 
so thoroughly that they no longer constitute an 
adequate defence of the German fortress, then that 
fortress has fallen. 

I do not believe that the war can end by mere attri- 
tion, by merely starving Germany into surrender. 
Germany herself will not allow that. If any of you 
have been studying the recent German Press utter- 
ances, and the evidence which filters through from 
neutral sources, you will be able to appreciate a new 
German temper ; they have begun to realise that con- 
quest of territory will avail them nothing. They have 
gambled upon the Allies being distracted and intimi- 
dated, and that gamble has failed. The Emperor 
rushes backwards and forwards, from Nish to 
Mezieres, from Lille to Warsaw. He reminds me of the 
bankrupt householder who goes about looking at his 
great possessions, his pictures, and his library and his 
gardens, but can find no comfort from them, because 
he knows that they cannot pay his debts ; that the hour 
of disaster is nigh. The German High Command 
have realised that to occupy territory is futile, so long 
as the armies of their opponents are unbroken and 
increasing. They have realised that they can never 
get the fruit of their land successes so long as the 
Fleets of the Allies hold the sea. Everything, I think, 
points to a great combined offensive, to try and antici- 
pate that deadly concerted blow which tiiey know that 
the Allies are preparing. 

Do not let us delude ourselves. Germany will not 
go down easily. I am pretty certain that we may 
expect in the near future a great naval dash. Geimany 
may have some card up her sleeve, one of those 
devices like poison gas, by which she hopes to redress 
the balance. I am confident that attempt will fail. I 
have only come this morning from the Grand Fleet — 
(applause) — and I wish I could find words to expound 
to you the impression made upon me. It is far the most 
striking impression I have ever had in my life. It 
is not only these great monsters lying out in these 
northern waters, beaten upon by snow gusts and 
wreathed in mists. It is not only the extraordinary 
efficiency of the service, the wonders of the gunnery 
and the equipment, but far more it was the spirit of 
the men. There you have men who, for two years, 
have endured the most nerve-racking tension — con- 
stant labour, constant expectation, and none of the 
pleasure, none of the satisfaction of action and a blow 
struck home. And yet I do not believe there is one 
man in that Grand Fleet to-day who is not as com- 
petent, and as keen, and as fresh, as when the vvar 
started. (Renewed applause.) In some ways, I think 
the achievement of our Navy in keeping that standard 
undimmed is almost the greatest achievement of the 
war; for remember that, “ He that ruleth his spirit is 
greater than he that taketh the city”; and I am very 
certain, and they are very certain, that if the Germans 
do make a dash, it will be the end of the German sea 
power for good and all. I think, too, that we may 
expect a good deal more of that brutal, but happily 
ineffective, aerial warfare. On land, as you know, 
they are attempting at this moment a huge offensive 
which must rank with their efforts in the autumn of 
1914. I think our Allies can check it, and if it comes 
against the British lines, as it probably will, we too 
will stand firm. 

If Germany fails, as I think she will fail, in this 
effort, she will be enormously weakened; and if w-e are 
not betrayed into a premature offensive ourselves, our 
own blow, when the time comes to deliver it, may be 
decisive. I think there is a very good chance that the 
next three months will see the crisis of the war. It 
will be a time of desperate and costly struggle. We 
may see on Germany’s side a dozen new devices, and 
we mav see many local and temporary successes; but 
I firmlv believe that nothing can alter the main factors. 
We have the men. With care and self-denial we can 
preserve our economic strength, and above all things, 
we have the moral — the spirit of the offensive ; the 
spirit that wins battles. I have no doubt about our 

March, 1916 



men in the field, or about our men on the sea. If the 
country behind them has one tithe of their devotion 
and their resolution, we shall, beyond doubt, be 
victorious ; and when the last shot has been fired, then 
it will be for all of us, even the humblest of us, to 
make certain that the fruits are not lost of so much 
gallantry and sacrifice. We shall have to build up a 
weary and broken world. If we can carry that great 
brotherhood of the trenches into the years of peace, 
and make a cleaner and a better and a juster England, 
where class hatred will abate because class selfishness 
has gone, then, with the grace of God, this war may 
yet rank as one of the happiest events in our history. 
{Loud and continued applause.) 

Mr. William Longman, in moving a vote of thanks 
to the speaker, said that the crowded hall that had 
welcomed Mr. Buchan, and the enthusiastic applause 
which greeted him at various times during his speech, 
and at the end, would convey to him more than any 
words of his (the speaker’s) could, the sincerest thanks 
with which they had listened to his address. He 
thought that one of the most enjoyable parts of it was 
Mr. Buchan’s serene confidence — (hear, hear) — that 
confidence which he (Mr. Longman) was sure was 
shared by the audience, and which was in itself the 
reason for the victory which would shortly come. 

Addressing Mr. Buchan, Mr. Longman said: “We 
are all very grateful to you for the kindness which 
you have shown in coming to speak to us here; and I 

hope that we may, after the War, have a further 
address from you on the subject.” (Applause.) 

Mr. F. H. Miles (Trustee) said he had very great 
pleasure in seconding the motion. After all that Mr. 
Longman had said it was not necessary for him to 
make a speech, although, from his splendid isolation 
there that evening, they might really take him for a 
platform orator. (Laughter.) He was nothing of the 
sort, but he did heartily endorse everything Mr. Long- 
man had said, and was sure they were all deeply grate- 
ful, not only for the way in which Mr. Buchan had 
expressed himself that evening, but for the great feel- 
ing that he had shown, and the confidence of their 
country, which was very beneficial and very nice for 
them to hear. He knew they all felt it; but coming 
from an authority such as that it gave them greater 
confidence. (Applause.) 

The President put the motion, and the same was 
carried by acclamation. 

Mr. Buchan, who, on rising to reply, was received 
with renewed applause, said : Mr. Longman, Mr. 
Miles, ladies and gentlemen, I have to thank you most 
sincerely, not only for the most cordial welcome you 
have given me, which is particularly gratifying as 
coming from what I may call my own people, but for 
the most attentive, courteous and kindly hearing which 
you have given me. It would be the greatest possible 
pleasure for me, if you do me the honour, to come 
back again some other time. 

Messrs. Chatto & Windus are publishing 
“ Love by an Indian River,” a new novel by Mrs. 
F. E. Penny; and “Poor Dear Providence,” a 
pre-war tale of navy life by Philip Kent, a new 
writer, who is now at sea on active service ; also 
“ Women and the Land,” an important book on 
this subject by Viscountess Wolseley, a daughter 
of the late Field-Marshal, who has had actual 
experience of working on the land. 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., have just published 
“Conflict and Conquest,” by Stewart Frankland, 
a novel of glorious naval adventure; “A Slack 
Wire,” by Marion Hill, author of that very 
successful book “ The Lure of Crooning Water,” 
of which some fourteen editions in the six shilling 
form were required. 

The Religious Tract Society are issuing new 
editions of “The Soul of Honour,” by Hesba 
Stretton ; “ The Furrow on the Hill,” by Florence 
Bone; “The Head of the House,” by Evelyn 
Everett-Green, the last two in the “ Every Girls’ 
Bookshelf” series; “The Christmas Child,” by 
Hesba Stretton. 

Mr. T'. Fisher Unwin has just published “What 
the Irish Regiments Have Done,” by Mr. S. 
Parnell Kerr, a first book on the exploits of the 
Irish regiments who have in the present war 
maintained, and far more than maintained, their 
magnificent traditions of courage and capacity in 
the field. The book is likely to take rank as a 
work of permanent historical value. It tells some- 
thing of the moving story of the heroism of the 
Irish regiments, not only in the long drawn-out 
struggle in France and Flanders, but also at the 
Dardanelles and in the Balkans. The book is 
prefaced by Mr. John Redmond’s diary of his 
visit to the front, which is full of interest and vivid 

Messrs. John Long, Ltd., have added to their 
Sixpenny Novels “The Future of Phyllis,” by 
Adeline Sergeant, and “A Beautiful Rebel,” by 
Ernest Glanville. 

Messrs. Cassell & Co. have published a popu- 
lar shilling edition of Mr. H. G. Wells’ striking 
and characteristic book, “An Englishman Looks 
at the World,” which was first published about 
two years since. It is worth noting that, written 
before the war, Mr. Wells anticipated the doubt 
expressed later by Sir Percy Scott as to the value 
of great battleships, the domination of the sub- 
marine, the need for an efficient aircraft service, 
and the possibility of the outbreak of a great 
European war, which at that time few English- 
men were inclined to admit. 

Messrs. Methuen & Co. have just issued “ The 
Right to Love,” a new novel by Mr. Robert 
Halifax; “The Shop Girl,” by Mr. and Mrs. 
C. N. Williamson; “The Devil Doctor,” by Sax 
Rohmer, author of “The Mysterious Dr. Fu 
Manchu,” and a cheaper two shilling edition of 
“ Old Andy,” by Mrs. Dorothea Conyers, which 
has proved so successful. 

Messrs. T. Werner Laurie, Ltd., are publishing 
“Degenerate Germany,” by Henry de Halsalle, 
which sets forth graphically and mercilessly the 
evil and immoral nature of the Hohenzollerns and 
the German nation. The proofs have been read 
by Lord Rosebery and Lord Beresford, both cf 
whom give it their hearty commendation. 

Messrs. Cassell & Co. will publish immediately 
“ Love’s Highway,” the last novel of the late 
Justus Miles Forman, who perished in the sinking 
of the Lusitania. The MS. was completed 
before he died, but no title had been chosen and 
the proofs were not revised. It is an Anglo- 
African romance, and will probably be accounted 
one of his most effective works. The same 
publishers are including “ The Secret Orchard,” 
by Mr. and Mrs. Egerton Castle, in their popular 
Shilling Cloth Bound Novels. 

Mr. Elkin Mathews announces that the prices 
of Mr. John Masefield’s “Salt Water Ballads,” 
“Ballads and Poems,” and “A Mainsail Haul” 
have been raised from 3s. 6d. net to 4s. 6d. net.

Under Cover. 

D EAR BLUESTOCKING, — In its capacity for 
“bucking-up,” pulling itself together, and 
putting its croakers and pessimists in their 
place, the book trade of this country has no need to 
fear comparison with any other class or section of 
Britons. When the war broke out nineteen months 
ago, you will remember, there were faint-hearted coun- 
sellors of despair who made haste to raise the cry 
that all was lost, for the time being, so far as the 
trade and all who lived by it were concerned, and that 
nothing remained but a general closing down of busi- 
ness and putting up of shutters until the vanished 
angel of peace once more spread his wings over the 
land. How firmly, and with what well-justified enter- 
prise and spirit, that cowardly advice was rejected, 
you will not need me to remind you. Just lately, as 
the increasing rigours of the war-conditions have come 
to be more and more severely felt, the “ all-is-lost ” 
brigade has shown some disposition to return to the 
charge, and to present an undoubtedly difficult and 
anxious situation in the darkest possible colours. 
Happily, they are finding themselves once more a 
discredited minority ; and I am inclined to think that 
this Spring Announcements Number of The Book- 
seller will be recognised as convincing evidence of the 
resolve of the trade in general to “carry on,” so far 
as circumstances permit, as pluckily and determinedly 
as ever. 

It will be generally admitted that the spring lists 
which the publishers have been able to put forward 
make, all things considered, a highly creditable and 
encouraging show ; and there seems good reason to 
hope that the Jeremiahs of the book trade will once 
more be found to have ludicrously overdone their part. 
None the less necessary is it to bear in mind that the 
one great essential for the weathering of the storm 
is unity of action among all concerned, and their 
loyal co-operation in any well-considered measures that 
may be decided upon as best calculated to meet the 
exceptional needs of this difficult time. Individuals, 
whether booksellers or publishers, who insist upon 
being a law to themselves at such a crisis as this are 
doing an ill service to the whole body of which they 
are members, and will certainly have cause to repent 
their obduracy in the long run. 

What the public, on their part, are likely^ to “do 
about ” the inevitable increase in the prices of books 
ought not to be doubtful ; though of course there may 
be some who will find it necessary or advisable to 
put new books in the “ luxuries ” class just now, and 
to suspend or severely limit their purchase “ until this 
tyranny be overpast.” Fortunately, there seems to 
be some hope that the difficulty arising from the action 
of the Government with regard to importation of 
paper material will not press quite so heavily upon 
the producers of books as was at first feared. But 
there can be no escape from an increase of book-prices 
and a more or less drastic limitation of output while 
the present conditions last; and I am afraid that a 
good deal of water will have flowed under the bridges 
before there can be any renewal of the era of un- 
limited cheap literature. 

I am wondering, by the way, what effect, if any, 
the restriction of the paper supply, as it affects our 
daily journals, will have upon the newspaper feuilleton 
which has become so established a feature of most of 
them within recent years? Since rigid economy of 
space will henceforth be necessary, one would imagine 
that among the first features to be sacrificed by a 
daily paper would be the serial story, which, after all, 
is no part of the necessary equipment of a newspaper. 
Should that prove to be so, publishers and booksellers 
would certainly have no cause to lament, since the 
thousands of people who nowadavs depend upon their 
newspapers for so much of their fiction — I don’t mean 
in the ii»s columns, please understand ! — would be 
obliged to seek what they want in volume form. But 
perhaps the editors of our “dailies,” bent on saving 

paper and economising space, will come to the con- 
clusion, on mature consideration, that the leading 
articles can be more easily spared ! 

It is sad to think that Mr. Henry James lived less 
than two months to enjoy the well-won distinction 
conferred upon him by the King, who admitted him 
to the highly exclusive Order of Merit on New Year’s 
Day of the present year. In him the English-speaking 
world loses an undeniably great literary artist, though 
one whose style and mental temperament made him 
the favourite of the select few, rather than the idol of 
the many. His novels, with all their great qualities, 
were, so to speak, an acquired taste; and it was a 
taste that many readers were doubtless discouraged 
from acquiring by the curiously lengthy and involved 
sentences which repelled them as an irritating affec- 
tation, though it was evidently not only natural but 
inevitable for the author of “The American,” 

I he Portrait of a Lady,” and so many other 
fine and distinguished novels to express himself 
in that way. None of his work is ever likely 

to be “popular,” in the conventional sense of 
the term ; but the best of it will assuredlv 
live. His decision to naturalise himself in the 
country where he had lived and worked so long 
was a compliment which literary England fully appre- 
ciated ; and all will remember how passionately, at the 
beginning of the war, he affirmed his faith in the 
justice of the cause of the Allies. His native and his 
adopted country will unitedly lament the passing of 
a great man of letters of whom both had good reason 
to be proud. 

The tale of our recent losses by death includes, too, 
one of our most erudite and fascinating writers on 
folk-lore, in the person of Sir Laurence Gomme, who 
so long held the position of Clerk to the London 
County Council. In spite of his arduous official 
duties, his literary output was remarkably large and 
varied, including historical novels and works on 
London and its govern riient as well as many volumes 
relating to the delightful and absorbing subject which 
he made the special study of his life. On the history 
and institutions of our capital he was a perfect ency- 
clopaedia of knowledge; and lie has happily left books 
behind him which will always be consulted as stan- 
dard authorities on subjects relating to the London of 
past ages. It is not known as yet whether he has 
left any reminiscences for publication; but such a 
volume, if it exists, could not fail to be of immense 
and many-sided interest. 

To Professor Victor Spiers, of King’s College, I am 
indebted for a courteous letter enclosing, for my edifi- 
cation, some recently issued pamphlets, “ isyud bi 
the Simplified Speling Sosieti,” which, my correspon- 
dent thinks, are convincing enough to convert their 
renders, on the spot, to agreement with the views 
and aims of their authors and publishers. Though 
sincerely grateful to Mr. Spiers for his kindness, I am 
afraid I must still continue to confess myself an 
obstinate heretic; and I can onlv regret that the exi- 
gencies of space prevent me from entering into the 
reasons why the arguments set forth in these pam- 
phlets do not appear as convincing to me as thev 
do to him. Mr. Spiers himself suggests that it is time 
for the opponents of “ simplified speling ” to change 
their minds, “ when we need every weapon to meet 
the foe.” To me, I fear, the idea of “ uglifying ” 
and corrupting our written language in order to meet 
the foe savours quaintly of the operation known as 
“cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face.” But my 
correspondent’s letter is so kindly and genial that T 
refrain from worrying him with further proofs of mv 

It is not at all surprising to be assured that stories 
with “ happy endings ” are enjoying almost a 
monopoly of popularity just now. Alas ! there is one 
“ happy ending ” to which we have all been eagerly 
looking forward in vain for the past nineteen months. 
Shall we get it this year? Jacob Omnium. 

March 3. 

March. 1916 



I T is a long’ time since notes from this country 
appeared in your Journal, but in the meantime we 
all have been busy. The war is a real thing to 
us, and we are in it because we believe in the 
righteousness of the cause, and above all, because the 
United Kingdom is in it. I use that title on account 
of the tender susceptibilities of so many of our people 
who are more Irish and Scotch than English, and 
who reprove me very often for the loosely used term 
“ England ” as covering the Mother Country. And 
I think they are right, provided that they can supply 
me with a more popular term than “ United King- 
dom ” or “ Great Britain.” We have tried Britain, 
but that has not become popular. It reminds me of 
the difficulty we — and you — find in identifying our 
neighbours to the South. They also suffer from the 
compound name, and when, on the other hand, they 
are called Americans, we have some fire-eaters over 
here who resent it greatly. However, the war has 
brought the word “ Canadians ” so much before the 
world and in so honourable a connection that I think 
we shall not have as much of this latter controversy. 

As I said, we are full of the war, the streets of our 
cities have regiments parading every day and funds 
for the relief of the boys at the front have occupied 
the attention of many of our people who formerly 
spent their energies in social pleasure. In one day in 
the city of Toronto we raised 105,000 guineas for the 
British Red Cross Society. 

But we are prospering with good harvests and many 
war contracts. The result is seen in the book trade, 
which, of course, is one of the first to feel the stress 
of hard times. 

I don’t know when so many distinctively Canadian 
books of merit were published as during this year. 
Foremost among these I should place Beckles Willson’s 
“ Life of Lord Strathcona.” We had Preston’s sketch 
of Strathcona as a capitalist, a promoter, and a 
politician, Pedley’s tribute to him as a man of parts, 
but this is a fascinating biography and a real contri- 
bution to Canadian history. The early part of the 
book is much superior to the latter. Why Willson 
dragged in Sir Sam Hughes, for instance, is a 
mvsterv. It is an inspiring book so far as the life of 
Strathcona is concerned, and to my mind the best 
thing Mr. Willson has produced. Cassell’s report a 
big sale (for a guinea book), and it deserves it. It 
may be noted in this connection that Preston’s “ Life 
of Strathcona ” has been issued in a new edition ; the 
incident about the luncheon given to the Strathcona 
Horse has been revised. It is a long cry from this 
biographv to a book by Peter MacArthur, who writes 
of his daily life on a farm in Ontario, and yet there 
is a real connection. Strathcona never quite freed 
himself from the farming desire, whether in Labrador 
or Manitoba. Peter MacArthur is a man of high 
literary standing, who after some years of prominence 
in the U.S.A. returned to his native province and to 
recruit his health settled on a farm, and tells us in 
his book, aptly called “ In Pastures Green,” the story 
of his daily life. It smells of the soil, and his humour 
has that same indefinable attractive flavour which has 
no “ lamp odour ” attaching thereto. But it is not 
only a humorous book, it is the only one of the kind 
I have ever read which gives a true picture of condi- 
tions in this wonderful province in the rural parts, 
and show's the possibilities of happiness, contentment 
and prosperity on the land instead of in the city. I 
think MacArthur is the humorist of the day in 
Canada. At his talk “ The Book in the Country 
Districts ” before the Ontario Library Association 
hundreds wer^ turned from the doors. There is a 
healthiness and a breeziness in his mirth that makes 
his “ In Pastures Green ” just the book to read in 
war time. J. M. Dent & Co. are the publishers. 

There is a bock on the war by an American resident 

IJ 3 

in the city of Toronto which has had a splendid 
reception. The author is Benjamin A. Gould, a 
Harvard man, whose New' England ancestry goes 
back to the Revolution, and who has a particularly 
lucid style of writing. It is called “ War Thoughts of 
an Optimist ” (j. M. Dent & Co.), and the central 
theme is the obligation which the United States might 
feel to enter upon this war on the side of the Allies. 
We w'ere greatly pleased to read the sympathetic 
review of it in a recent number of the Spectator. And 
in this connection it may be of interest to your 
readers to know that there is being recruited in 
Toronto an American Legion of American-born citi- 
zens who are making up the 97th Battalion for 
Canadian Overseas Service. Mr. Gould and members 
of tine American Club are behind this movement. 

Dent’s have issued an interesting book on “ French 
Canadian Life,” by Professor Le Rossignol. It is 
called “Jean Baptiste,” and is written in the same 
pleasing style that made his “ Little Stories of 
Quebec ” so popular. 

Macmillan’s have a small book on “ Life in Canada 
among the United Empire Loyalists,” in which Mr. 
Walter Herrington, K.C., of Napanee, tells in an 
interesting form the story of the home-life of these 
people to whom Canada owes so much, the Tories of 
’76, who left the United States and sacrificed all their 
possessions that they might live under the old flag. 
They are publishing also a satire on Canadian society 
life, which is attracting a good deal of local attention. 

Arthur Stringer’s “ Prairie Wife ” has had a large 
sale, and Nellie McClung’s book of addresses called 
“ In Times Like These ” (McLeod & Allen) is one of 
the best sellers of the season. She is a very able 
speaker, and drew perhaps the largest audiences of 
the year in the cities of Ontario, where she spoke on 
Purity in Politics, Woman Suffrage, and allied topics. 
This same firm published Agnes Lant’s “ Canadian 
Commonwealth,” an excellent book of timely essays 
on Canadian problems. 

Leacock’s “ Moonbeams from the Larger Lunacy ” 
(Lane) is selling well on account of his former books, 
for this clearly is not up to the standard set by him 
in earlier times. Indeed, no book of his has been as 
popular as “ Sunshine Sketches of a Little Tow ; n,” 
which goes to show that “ the story’s the thing.” 

Law'rence Burpee has given us a biography of Sir 
Sanford Fleming, which is a conscientious and read- 
able life of a man w’ho w'as prominent in our country 
as an engineer and a public-spirited person outside of 
the political arena. It was a difficult task, as there 
were no dramatic episodes in his life which would 
help a biographer. S. B. Gundy, of the Oxford Press, 
is the publisher. 

The Women’s Liberal Association of Ontario has 
issued in pamphlet form called “ Hearts of Gold ” a 
collection of poems which during the past few years 
have won the annual prizes offered by the Globe, the 
leading Liberal newspaper, for poems illustrative of 
incidents in early Canadian history. It was a happy 
thought to gather these really worthy poems in a 
volume, and the book will likely have a large 
circulation as the profits are being devoted to war 

But I have almost forgotten to speak of “ Democracy 
and the Nations,” the great book which includes the 
addresses of James A. Macdonald, the talented editor 
of the Globe and the apostle of Democracy, whose 
excellence in platform speaking is recognised in the 
Old Land as w'cll as on this Continent. As we might 
expect, the addresses lose in the cold type. They 
need the emotional fervidness of his oratory, but they 
will be read by thousands who have been “ carried 
away ” by his marvellous powers of persuasion. The 
great central theme is peace, and especially that peace 
which has been preserved for a hundred years between 
the U.S.A. and Canada.

To the Editor of The Bookseller. 

Dear Sir, — Many booksellers in various parts of the 
country arc resenting the “ meagre terms ” of the pub- 
lishers offered to the trade. Before this innovation the 
bookseller found it difficult to pay his way and live. 
Now matters are much more serious for him; for 
many publishers, whilst increasing trade terms, have 
not increased published price. Indeed, so keen is the 
resentment that the following resolution was passed 
at a meeting of the booksellers at Halifax : — 

“ That we unanimously resolve to refrain from buy- 
ing for stock any publications that do not leave a 
reasonable profit.” 

The amount of profit thought reasonable was fixed, 
and will be given to other booksellers who wish to stop 
this exploitation on the part of publishers. 

Yours truly, 

On behalf of the Halifax Booksellers, 

J. W. Aldam. 


Clark. February 16th. — At Haringey Park, 
Crouch End, N., Mr. Henry Clark, aged 80, for 
fifty years in the editorial department of 
the Religious Tract Society. He entered 
the service of the Society in 1864, and retired from 
active work in 1914. During the larger part of 
that intervening half century he had editorial 
charge of the Society’s smaller periodicals, and 
also prepared most of their smaller juvenile books. 
In 1875, on the retirement of Mr. John Henry 
Cross, Mr. Clark took over the editorship of 
the Child’s Companion , and in 1887 he started 
the well-known penny monthly nursery magazine, 
Our Little Dots. In 1876 he succeeded Dr. 
Samuel Manning as editor of the Cottager and 
Artisan, and in 1881 he started the halfpenny 
weekly people’s paper, Friendly Greetings. 
All these he continued editing until his retirement 
two years ago. He also started a monthly series 
of Large Type Shilling Story Books for Adults, 
which ran to 130 volumes. Some hundreds of 
juvenile story books, ranging from a farthing to 
is. each, were also prepared by him, and a vast 
number of those who are now well advanced in 
life must have reason to thank Henry Clark for 
thus supplying them with the books they read 
in their childhood, while in the Cottager and 
Artisan and Friendly Greetings he provided 
uplifting and educational reading for thousands 
of working men and women. 

James. February 28th. — At his residence, 21, 
Carlyle Mansions, Chelsea, aged 72, Mr. Henry 
James, the distinguished novelist. Though born 
and brought up in the United States, the brother 
of Professor William James, the famous psycho- 
logist, he was more English than American, and 
last July was formally naturalised as a British 
subject. In the last New Year’s honour list he 
received the Order of Merit in recognition of his 
distinguished place in literature. 

Treves. January 30th. — At Milan, aged 82, 
S. Emiles Treves, founder of the well-known 
Italian publishing house of Fratelli Treves. He 
was a native of Trieste, and more than fifty years 
ago founded the business, which has developed 
until it is now known all over the world.

On the Art of Writing : Lectures Delivered in the 
University of Cambridge, 1913-1914. By Sir Arthur 
Quiller-Couch, M.A. (Cambridge University Press).— 
The appointment, by Mr. Asquith, of Sir Arthur 
Quiller-Couch to the newly-established King 
Edward VII. Professorship of English Literature 
in the University of Cambridge, was a very 
noticeable new departure in the history of 
University professorial teaching. For the new Pro- 
fessor, though not undistinguished at Oxford, was 
mainly known as a popular novelist and a writer of 
facile humorous verse. We do not think he ever 
pretended to be a serious student, in the academic 
sense, of English literature. And the first volume of 
his lectures, delivered under these unusual conditions, 
must necessarily excite a certain curious interest and 
expectation. This is, indeed, largely justified by the 
very practical subject with which the Professor has 
dealt. He does not discourse on the works of any 
great writer or author, he rather takes the practical 
point of view', and tries to teach his students how T 
best they may become good writers themselves. If a 
teacher is one who knows what he has to teach Sir 
Arthur here has unexceptional qualifications, for none 
of his numerous readers can doubt that he at least 
knows how to write. He rightly emphasises, as 
strongly as possible, the particular point he wishes to 
make, that “ Literature is not a mere science to be 
studied, but an art to be practised.” This is hi9 
theme, which he sets forth in these pages with quite 
exceptional force, attractiveness and ability. As a 
mere manual or handbook of the art of writing it 
can hardly be too highly praised, but at the same 
time he has given us a succession of chapters on 
different standpoints from which the subject may be 
discussed, that everyone, whether he is or is not 
actually a writer, or a would-be writer, can read 
with continual pleasure and profit. The inaugural 
lecture in which Sir Arthur lays down, in his own 
delightful fashion, the main principles on which he 
proposes to “ profess ” his subject, at once attracts 
the reader’s sympathy, attention, and interest. It is at 
least certain that a professor who can deal with so 
great a subject in so unconventional, so unusual, 
indeed in so original a fashion, must have something 
to say that is worth the saying. We may, therefore, 
safely venture to prophesy that this first volume of 
lectures will prove an immediate success, and that 
each succeeding volume, as it appears in due course, 
will be even more successful than its predecessor. 

These Lynnekers. By J. D. Beresford. (Cassell 
& Co.) — Though the scenes and surroundings are 
rather different, the subject of Mr. Beresford’s latest 
novel is very much the same as that of its successful 
predecessor, “ The Mountains of the Moon.” In both 
he describes and analyses with exceptional ability and 
skill the life and character of the country gentry,, and 
in each case the hero is a member of the family, who 
declines to conform to the accepted standards and 
conventions, and really proves himself much better 
and stronger. “ These Lynnekers ” could carry back 
their family traditions to Crecy, but of late years they 
had done but little, and “ the Lynneker blood was 
running a little thin.” Dickie Lynneker is the 
youngest son of the Rector of Halton, but he dislikes 
the classical training of the public school to which 
he and his brothers are sent in the traditional 
fashion, and instead becomes a clerk in the bank at 
Medborough, when he attracts the attention of the 
managing director, a great London financier, with 
Whom he spends five years, and makes some money 
without acquiring the desire to make any more. Alto- 
gether, indeed, Dickie is a very unusual and uncon- 
ventional person, and the contrast between him and 
the other members of his extremely proper family 

(except, indeed, his sister, Adela, who is not unlike 
him, and eventually runs away to marry the village 
carpenter) is worked out with quite wonderful success. 
All the persons described are portrayed very much in 
the manner of George Eliot or Anthony Trollope, and 
the reader can hardly help feeling that the story owes 
much of its force and power to the author’s actual 
experience. Old Mr. Lynneker, the weak, vacillating 
father, is particularly attractive, and Dickie’s own 
love story at the end is by no means the least interest- 
ing episode in a tale which has decisively placed 
Mr. Beresford in the front rank of our leading 

The Bent Twig. By Dorothy Canfield. 

The Chorus. By Sylvia Lynd. (Constable <fc Co.) 
—Both of these two new novels, though widely 
different in theme and treatment, are clearly above 
the ordinary run of everyday novels. The first comes 
to us from across the Atlantic, and describes, with 
unusual insight and success, how the heroine, Sylvia 
Marshall, the beautiful eldest daughter of a very un- 
conventional Professor in an American State Uni- 
versity, finds it hard to choose between the sincere 
genuine, homely goodness of her father and mother 
and her own family life, and the more attractive 
and apparently splendid surroundings of her wealthy 
aunt, Victoria, and the society among whom she lives. 
The contrast between the two ideals is vividly empha- 
sised, and all the persons in the story are real and 
human in a quite exceptional degree. The family of 
the Professor is delightfully sketched, as are also 
the beautiful Aunt Victoria, and her wastrel step-son, 
Felix Morrison, and Austin Page, the millionaire, who 
accepts the Socialistic ideal, and whom Sylvia 
eventually marries. In “ The Chorus ” we have 
the first work of a new novelist, from whom 
great things may safely be anticipated. It tells how 
one, Antony Hamel, a famous artist, falls in love, 
although he is already married, with a girl of sixteen, 
Nellie, a friend of one of his pupils. Nellie is com- 
mon and weak, but she knows how to love, and it is 
sad to see how Antony is so weak as to seemingly 
accept her love and then cast it aside. The situation 
is sufficiently tragic, but it is handled with wonderful 
effect. Throughout the author shows that she is 
endowed with more than ordinary intellect and art. 

Bentley’s Conscience. By Paul Trent. 

The Borderer. By Harold Bindloss. (Ward, Lock 
& Co.) — We all know that it is generally said that 
no one can be successful in business and at the same 
time maintain the true spirit of a Christian. Mr. 
Trent has written his latest tale to prove the opposite, 
and no doubt succeeds, as far as the fiction is con- 
cerned. Clive Bentley, of course, comes several times 
to grief, but wins in the end, but that he would, under 
the same conditions in real life, we are not quite con- 
vinced. At the same time Mr. Trent’s experienced 
skill has, of course, enabled him to construct an 
interesting and, indeed, an arresting plot, and the 
various scenes and incidents have been throughout 
very skilfully handled. The exposure of the methods 
of insurance companies as regards workmen’s com- 
pensation deserves wide attention, and it is, of course, 
only natural that anyone with a tender conscience 
is not likely to be quite comfortable in the employ of 
a company promoter, a party politician, or the pro- 
prietor of a great newspaper. Mr. Harold Bindloss ’s 
new book deals with a different theme, the tracking of 
submarines on the West Coast of Scotland. This, the 
main theme of the tale, is not immediately evident, 
but there is much mysterious yachting and rowing on 
the Solway with strange happenings at Appleyard, a 
country house in that neighbourhood, where the 
guardian of the young laird eventually turns out to be 
a German spy.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Dear, 

Here’s Greeting from Australia 1 

I have known you so long through your writings that it seems as natural to write to you as a 
very dear friend, as that’s what you are, and have been to me, ever since someone gave me three of your 
books one summer holiday eight years ago. 

On a bright spring morning, many weeks ago, my man, my great, big, warm-hearted man, sailed away to 
the War. I motored into the Barracks with him, and there he left me, ho couldn’t bear the thought of me 
going to the boat. ... So I turned into a music store, and eagerly asked a girl for some happy songs — songs 
that would help me cheer others like myself. She was an understanding dear, and helped me gather together 

such pretty ones, and, as I left, I felt I had found another friend. Then I went on to a book store; here it 

was a man; and, oh' he looked so tired and sad. I asked, “Have you got any new writings of Ella Wheeler 

Wilcox?’ and he brought me “Poems of Optimism’’ and “Poems of Progress.” We looked them through 

together, and read little pieces. He loved you just like I do, so we quickly made friends, and so when I came 
outside again the sun seemed heaps brighter, and I was beginning to forget that gliding away car. * * * * * 

To-night, after I had heard the children say their prayers— they always say them at the open window so 
as the wind will gather them up, and carry them over the seas to Daddie — and tucked them up, I sat down 
here to write a Xmas letter to Daddie. When I got to the words “ Peace on Earth ” my pen stopped, the words 
seemed to mock me so; I couldn’t go on then, so I picked up one of your books, and there, as if in answer 
to my thoughts I found “ The Edict of the Sex!” Oh! you wonder-woman, how blessed you are, to have 
the power to send messages like that into the far corners of the earth. Etc., etc., etc., etc. 

Somewhere in France, February 13th, 1916. 

A Private in the 7th Cameron Highlanders writes to Mrs. Wilcox 

Permit me to thank you for the constant help and encouragement I have obtained from the volume 
“ Poems of Progress,” which I have carried about many months. . . . Oftentimes, after one’s chums have been 
killed, one gets very depressed in the trenches, but I have always been helped by this volume. Etc., etc., etc. 


There are no better volumes to send to the Front — Officers, Men and Nurses. 

Please look to your stock, and send order on, as our three travellers are serving our Country.

The authors of this remarkable book are the two men who collaborated in 1904 in establish- 
ing the first Industrial bank in this country. That institution, which bears the former’s name, 
is a household word, and both are still its active conductors. They have had direct and vital 
experience in the mobilising of the people’s savings, and their testimony therefore as to what is 
needed on the financial side to win the war is invaluable. In this book, which is written in a 
style free from the pedantry of the political economist, they show how, from the confused 
events and contradictory convolutions of the past 16 months, one striking fact emerges, over- 
shadowing all others — namely, that victory will lie with the side that has the strongest staying 
power, or in other words, with the side that can muster the largest financial reserves and 
mobilise them with the most deadly efficiency. And the authors, out of a long experience, 
show how this should be done, and themselves contribute novel yet eminently practical schemes 
towards the accomplishment of this end. This book should command widespread attention.

T HE two essentials to the effi- 
cient conduct of a Valuation are 

Knowledge and Experience. 

The former can be obtained in a compara- 
tively short time by anyone possessed of 
average intelligence, but the experience 
necessary to enable such knowledge to be 
properly applied can only be acquired by 
continuous and careful study. For over 
Sixty Years we have been intimately con- 
nected with the Bookselling, Stationery and 
Printing Trades in all their branches, and are 
thus able to place at the disposal of Clients 
services which are in every way unique.

THE CRIMSON FIELD Halliwell Sutcliffe 

For the theme of this new romance Mr. Halliwell 
Sutcliffe has gone further back into English history 
than in any of his previous hooks, and, under the 
title of “ The Crimson Field,” gives ns a vivid 
story of Flodden, that strangely varied battle, 
with its unusual contrasts, alternating superiority 
on either side, and the death of the Scottish King 
in the midst of the struggle. In the first historical 
romance of the modern school written on the 
period of that momentous conflict the author 
approaches Flodden Field with the march of the 
dalesmen of Wharfe to the scene of the fight, and 
shows their share in the last wild charge that 
settled the issue of the battle. 

FREY & HIS WIFE (3/6) Maurice Hewlett 

Mr. Maurice Hewlett’s new work is a saga told 
with the wealth of detail and vivid actuality 
which have made the author’s excursions into 
primitive Scandinavian history and legend as fas- 
cinating and as strongly human in their appeal as 
the mediasval romances which first made him 


Eden Phillpotts 

A vivid story of love and high adventure on the 
Cornish coast. Mr. Phillpotts’ books are quite 
unlike those of any other novelist, and his latest, 
strongly individual, is likely to prove itself one 
of the best novels of the year. 


Harold Bindloss 

Academy. — “ This author’s novels are terse, power- 
ful, yet graceful, showing intimate knowledge and 
acute observation, never overweighted with de- 
scription, yet containing many delightful pictures.” 


Mr. Le Queux can always be relied upon for a 
story crammed with excitement, and in this new 
rale, which concerns a vendetta and its workings, 
he is seen at his very best. 

HUMAN NATURE Marie Connor Leighton 

Romance, mystery, and sensation, three ingredients 
skilfully blended as Mrs. Leighton alone knows 
how, go to make a most holding and engrossing 
story from this popular writer’s pen. # 


Abounds in tense and exciting situations, and 
Mr. White’s critics are of opinion that he has never 
written a better story. 


“ Mr. J. S. Fletcher has certainly scored a record 
with his ‘ Annexation Society.’ It is the most 
breathlessly exciting story that we ever remember 
to have read .” — Western Mail. 


Mr. Paul Trent’s stories, “ The Vow ” and “ The 
Foundling,” were powerful tales with a motive. 

“ Bentley’s Conscience,” as its title indicates, is of 
the same school. 


Lindsay RusseU 

This book is fresh proof that Lindsay Russell is a 
born story-teller ; it glows with colour and emotion 
and contains a love story that will leave few 
readers unmoved. 


Florence Warden 

A really remarkable sensation story is Miss 
Warden’s inimitable style — one whirl of thrills and 


Alice & Claude Askew 

Alice and Claude Askew need no introduction as 
writers of powerful emotional stories, and in “ The 
Footlight Glare ” they have produced a vivid, 
rapidly moving and entrancing romance. 


There is no lack of excitement in this brightly 
written novel, which holds the attention and in- 
terest of the reader to the end. The popular author 
of “ Sanders of the River ” again displays his 
gifts of originality and crisp dialogue.

“Mr. Colin’s excellent translation makes available to the public in this country a work which is based upon intimate

the underlying causes of the catastrophe in which the civilised world is involved .” — The Scotsman. 

“History will not forget the splendid stand Baron Beyens made not only for his native land, but also for honour and 
justice. . . . Baron Beyens sketches with much skill the people that counted and the general feeling of the country, say, in 
1912, and lays down some definite propositions and brings out with clearness some important facts .”— The Glasgow Herald. 

“ Well worth the attention of the British public. It forms a singularly close analysis of the events and motives which 
led up to the war— all the more effective by reason of the consistent fairness with which it is conducted .” — The Times Literary

Commissioner with the British Expeditionary 
Force. Cloth, 2 - net ; paper, 1 /- net. 

( Fifth I m pression .) 

“No more appalling indictment against a 
nation and its governors could well be framed 
than is to be found in this book. Mr. Morgan 
has done his work thoroughly and systematically, 
with results which form a record as convincing 
as it is damning .” — Daily Telegraph. 

“ An excellent service has been rendered the 
Allied cause by the publication of this tremendous 
indictment at a popular price. It should be 
circulated all over the world in hundreds of 
thousands .” — Daily Graphic.

The Directors of Messrs. Cassell & Co. in the 

annual report, submitted to the general meeting of 
the shareholders on March 31st, state that after 
providing for bad and doubtful debts, deprecia- 
tion, and all expenses of management, there was 
a profit of ^12,158 18s. gd. for the year. Deduct- 
ing ^3,720 interest on debentures, the balance 
^(8,438 18s. gd. with ^5,214 is. brought for- 
ward makes the net balance ^13,652 19s. gd. 
This result the Directors consider very satisfac- 
tory in view of the exceptional difficulties due 
entirely to the war, but having regard to the 
advantage of retaining a substantial cash balance 
in this time of financial stringency they regret they 
cannot recommend the payment of a dividend. 
They report that about two hundred members of 
the staff have joined the Forces, of whom five they 
regret to say have been killed in action. The 
retiring Directors, Messrs. Edwin Bale and Mr. 
W. A. Posnett, are proposed for re-election.

A correspondent writes to ask in what book of 
recitations the poem “ Charlie Lathom’s Pard ” 
is included. If any of our readers can give us 
this information we shall be glad to send it on to 
our correspondent. 

Mr. H. W. Keay’ s son, who was one of the 
victim of the Germans’ poisoned gas, has now 
sufficiently recovered to commence light dutv. 
Should he have another attack, for the effects of 
the gas remain in the system a long time, he will 
probably be sent back to England. 

Mr. Thomas Owen Jacobsen, J.P., M.P., who 

has just been returned to Parliament by the elec- 
tors of the Hyde Division, in the place of Mr. F. 
Neilson, who has retired, is the head of the well- 
known firm of Messrs. Jacobsen, Welch & Co., 
Ltd., manufacturing stationers of Hyde and 
London. Starting in a comparatively small way 
of business, Mr. Jacobsen has made for his firm a 
very wide reputation, and the Newton Mill pro- 
ductions are known all over the world. The firm 
have a large factory, which is being further 
extended, at Hyde, and the London offices are in 
Paternoster Square. Mr. Jacobsen is a man of 
broad view's, he has travelled much, and he will 
undoubtedly be a distinct acquisition to the House. 

The London and Provincial Retail Newsagents' 
Association (North London branch) has decided 
to charge full price for all books, except over- 
stocks and job lines. 

The Associated Booksellers: Yorkshire Dis= 

trict. — Acting on the suggestions of a previous 
meeting of Leeds booksellers to invite members of 
the trade in Leeds and district to meet together for 
mutual help and benefit, a large and representa- 
tive gathering w r as held in the Church Institute, 
Leeds, on Wednesday, March 29. The Leeds 
booksellers were fully represented, and members 
from Bradford, Halifax, Huddersfield, Wakefield, 
Cleckheaton, Ilkley, Pudsey, Heckmondwfike, 
Ossett, and Bingley were present. After tea the 
chair was taken by Mr. Jackson, who gave a very 
genial welcome to all present, expressing his 
gratification at such a large gathering as evincing 
the keen interest taken in the matter by the mem- 
bers of the trade. Mr. Jackson gave a short 
sketch of the rise of the Booksellers’ Association 
from its commencement in Leeds, March 24, 1898, 
and intimated that owing to the inconvenience of 
distance the meetings were usually held in Lan- 
cashire. Yorkshire, however, being quite large 
enough to sustain a branch, it might be desirable 
to consider the formation of a separate branch of 
the association in Yorkshire, w'hereby more mem- 
bers could be elected and the shorter distance to 
be travelled would enable meetings to be more 
largely attended and the interest in them in- 
creased. Meetings might be held quarterly and 
probably in different towns in order to keep up the 
interest in the association, and he invited a full 
expression of opinion from all present as to such 
proceedings being desirable. The following 
resolutions were moved and carried unanimously : 
— “ That this meeting of booksellers in Leeds and 
district are of the opinion that a branch of the 
Associated Booksellers of Great Britain and Ire- 
land be formed to cover the w'hole of Yorkshire, as 
a nearer place of meeting is desirable in the in- 
terests of the trade and of the association.” 

That meetings be held quarterly in the first 
month of the quarter and as often as possible in 
different towms. Wednesday, beine usually a clos- 
ing day, to be the day.” That “ The Manchester 
agreement be adopted here, with the deletion of 
part of Clause 3, which should thus read : — * That 
script school books sold over the counter be sold 
net, and that subject school books up to 2s. 6d. 
published price be sold net, above that price at a 
maximum discount of 2d. in the is., and the red 
cards printed be exhibited showing the new terms 
of sale to the public.’ ” The next meeting will be 
held in Bradford on May 3, 

April, 1916. 



The Booksellers of Hastings, St. Leonards and 
Bexhill at a recent meeting presided over by Mr. 
Keay, President of the Associated Booksellers of 
Great Britain and Ireland, passed the following 
resolutions: — (1) That no larger discount be 
allowed to the public than 2d. in the is. oft subject 
books (all net books, net) ; (2) All subject books 
2s. and under to be sold net ; (3) All subject books 
at 2s. 6d. and over to be sold at a discount of not 
more than 2d. in the is. ; (4) A discount of not 
more than 2d. in the is. may be given off all 
prices in subject books if purchased in bulk of not 
less than 20s., by any authorised person, such as 
clergy, teachers, etc. ; (5) All magazines and six- 
penny paper novels net ; (6) Educational, technical, 
and engineering works, whatever is adopted by 
the London booksellers (result to be notified later). 
The following who were present signified their 
agreement with the resolution Mr. A. M. Apel, 
Miss Phillips (Messrs. A. Brooker), Mr. W. J. 
Brown (Messrs. Brown & Woodley), Mr. F. 
Burton, Mr. J. W. E. Chubb, Mr. E. Dalton, 
Messrs. King Bros., Mr. H. Swain, Mr. C. 
Whittaker, Hastings and St. Leonards; Mr. A. E. 
Barker, Mr. W. F. Giller, Mr. G. Sexton, Mrs. 
M. \ ale, Bexhill. Since the meeting the follow- 
ing have also assented to the resolutions : — Mr. 
Kiddie (Messrs. P. J. Bateman), Mr. A. W. 
Lister (Messrs. Daniel & Co.), Mr. J. O. Forster, 
Mr. F. J. Johnson, Messrs. Randle & Sons, 
Hastings and St. Leonards'; Mr. C. W. Harris, 
Bexhill; Mr. J. L. Deacon, Rye. 

Manchester and District Booksellers’ and 
Stationers’ Association. — The annual meeting of 
this Association was held on Friday, March 
17th. The nation’s call to arms, and the 
inclement weather, prevented the assembly 
of a very large number, but about seventy 
were present. The retiring President, Mr. 
F. Johnson (Messrs. Williams and Norgate) 
expedited the progress of official business, 
in order that the excellent programme of 
music shoidd be enjoyed to the full. The joint 
Acting-Secretary and Treasurer, Mr. F. J. Barlow 
presented his two reports, which showed that the 
Association was never in a sounder condition ; 
the membership is over 200, and the balance of 
funds in hand is in excess of any previous year. 
In view of the excellent amounts collected for 
charitable purposes during the past twelve 
months, and the fact that the subscriptions of all 
members on active service are remitted, this is 
remarkably good. Mr. Johnson, in a short 
valedictory speech, especially thanked the work- 
ing members of the committee for their splendidly 
consistent efforts which had made it possible to 
have a good year, under the circumstances, and 
to extend their knowledge of the “ fellowship of 
life.” The usual votes of thanks to the retiring 
President and officers were cordially given, and 
among those who spoke were Messrs. S. Walker 
(Messrs. A. and S. Walker, Ltd.), J. E. Clare 
(Buxton), — Bolton (Messrs. J. Galt and Co.), 
— Baldwin (Messrs. Sherratt and Hughes), P. J. 
Billinge (Messrs. Cooper, Denison and Walk- 
den), J. Russell (Messrs. A. and S. Walker), J. C. 
Smith (Messrs. John Heywood, Ltd.), — Page, 
etc., etc. Mr. Johnson proposed Mr. J. Noble 
(John Heywood, Ltd.) as President, and testified, 
from over a quarter of a century’s friendship, to 

his sterling qualities as a man of business and as 
a man of sociability and tact. Mr. J. S. Smith 
seconded, and the proposal was unanimously 
carried. The new President then took the chair, 
and briefly thanked the members for the honour 
done to one of their “ allies ” — he being neither 
a bookseller nor stationer. Mr. Hindle (Messrs. 
A. H. Megson & Son) was elected as Secretary, 
and the Committee know they have got hold of a 
good man for as long as the military needs of 
the country will allow. Mr. Barlow was once 
again elected to the treasurership, his work in that 
position being highly praised each year by the 
Auditors. A full list of the new Executive and 
Committee will be issued in due course; but it 
was noteworthy that among the new Committee- 
men were Miss Woodhouse (John Heywood, 
Ltd.), Miss Howard (John Heywood, Ltd.), Miss 
Thistlewaite (W. H. Smith and Son). The fol- 
lowing friends contributed to a most delightful 
musical evening: — Mrs. Hallsworth, in “ The 
Dear Little Shamrock ” and “ Angus Mac- 
donald,” the latter bringing a tumultuous 
encore; Mr. Dyer excellently rendered “ Who 
Treads the Path of Duty ” and “ My Old 
Shako Miss Horsley and Miss Hey gave the 
favourite duet, “ O’er the Hill, O’er the Dale ” ; 
and Miss Horsley also secured an encore with 
“ The Carnival,” as a further encore singing that 
dainty little Irish item, “ A Little Bit of 
Heaven,” St. Patrick’s Day thus being twice 
honoured. An excellent quartette party — Messrs. 
A. J. Barlow, W. P. Davies, R. Fishwick, and 
J. V. Winchester — contributed various part songs 
with great success. Mr. J. E. Clare gave a 
Kipling recitation, and Miss Matthews and Mr. 
Johnson assisted at the pianoforte. 

The Book Trade in America seems to be enjoy- 
ing considerable prosperity. The Publishers’ 
Weekly reports that a traveller for one of the 
larger houses just back from a journey 
through the larger cities of the Middle West, 
says he has never before seen such an optimistic 
lot of booksellers . . . the public apparently has 
an abundance of money for extra bindings and 
standard sets. War books seem to be in good 
demand ; one retailer said he was making a lot of 
money out of them, and sending in a lot of re- 
orders every week. This satisfactory state of 
things is no doubt mainly due to the general 
prosperity of the country. At the same time it is 
pointed out that “ not the least factor in the 
present robust condition of the book trade is the 
relatively decreased book production. The trade 
is prosperous, not in spite of a lessened book out- 
put, but at least partially on account of it. . . . 
While larger lists may mean a few more worth- 
while books, they also mean an increasing per- 
centage of books wfithout which the trade would 
be better off.” 

National Book Trade Provident Society. — At 

the last meeting of the Committee of Management 
one life member was admitted in the General 
Division and two applications for membership in 
the Insurance Division were passed. The com- 
mittee decided to invest ;£ioo in Exchequer 
Bonds. It was arranged that the annual meet- 
ing of the society should be held in the Stationers’ 
Hall on Friday, May 19, at 6.30 p.m., to be 
followed if possible by a popular lecture.

Messrs. Macmillan & Co. have obtained a ver- 
dict in their favour, with £500 damages, in the 
King’s Bench Division, in an action for libel 
which they brought against the editress of the 
Nursing Press, Ltd., Mrs. Ethel Gordon 
Fenwick (wife of Mr. Bedford Fenwick), and the 
Press Printers. The plaintiffs complained that 
an article published in the British Journal of 
Nursing of May 15, was a gross libel on them 
and on Miss Swanhilde Bulan, the editress of their 
journal, the Nursing Times, the lady being of 
German parentage. The statement in effect was 
that Fraulein Bulan was an untrained alien. Sir 
Frederick Macmillan, in giving evidence, said he 
regarded the statement complained of as a very 
cruel and malevolent attack on Miss Bulan. Mrs. 
Fenwick, called by her counsel, said when she 
wrote the article she had no malice or ill-will 
towards Miss Bulan or Messrs. Macmillan. The 
jury returned a verdict as above, and judgment 
was entered accordingly with costs. 

The Corporation of Glasgow is organising a 
British Industries Exhibition, to be held in that 
city from Wednesday, August 23, to Saturday, 
September 9. It is under the auspices and support

assist manufacturers in this country to capture 
enemy trade, and to bring manufacturers and 
buyers into touch with each other is sure to com- 
mand every sympathy. Full particulars for 
prospective exhibitors may be obained from the 
general manager, Mr. J. M. Freer, at the offices
